Crock Pot Tomato Soup with Pizza Beer

Crockpot Tomato Soup with Mamma Mia! Pizza Beer

Is it cold where you live? If so, I hate to say this, but I’m a little envious. It’s still in the 80’s here. It’s just really hard to get in the holiday spirit when you’re shopping for your Christmas tree in a sundress and flip flops, right? We’re going to Georgia in 2 weeks, though. I’m sure it will be super cold, and I’ll be running home to the warm temps.

There are not many things I miss about cold weather. Layers, heavy jackets, waiting for your car to warm up, freezing after getting out of the shower, frosted windshields, etc. I do miss reading by the fireplace, enjoying a hot bowl of soup on a cold day, drinking hot chocolate while looking at lights, and the possibility of a snow day. The fact that it’s still hot as hell outside doesn’t keep me from enjoying a bowl of warm soup, though. I made this recipe a few weeks ago. It was actually a little chilly that day. By chilly, I’m talking mid 70’s.  I’m a sissy when it comes to the cold!

Mamma Mia! Pizza Beer was the star of this yummy Crockpot Tomato Soup. You may remember my recipe for Beer Bread a few weeks ago using this same beer.  It really tastes just like Pizza. You can go to their website to see if this beer is available in your area. I’m sure if we get it in South Florida, everyone else should find it fairly easy.

This recipe makes enough soup for an army! I used some of the leftovers for stuffed shells {recipe to come soon} and had a quart leftover in the freezer.

I recommend serving this soup with my Beer Bread hot out of the oven.

In Other News

I’ve been a little MIA lately. This weeks been a little crazy.

Wednesday, we went to TBC for their Movember contest.

TBC Movember 1

I had the pleasure of looking at this every day last month… Thanks TBC! Luckily, it was gone shortly after we arrived home. I love Huck’s beard… not a fan of the handlebar look!

TBC Movember

Karl and Holly joined us at TBC for the event. Like Karl’s new haircut? Huck didn’t win this year, but did come in 2nd, and passed the crown on to the winner.

Thursday, I had the Barley Doll’s meet-up.

Barley Dolls

We started at Das Biergarten in Abacoa. Das has a good craft beer menu and the turn out was really good. We had a few newbies but most everyone was repeats. As people started leaving, some of the ladies decided to headed to Jumby Bay for wine. The Barley Dolls do not discriminate against alcohol. We do drink responsibly, though!

Friday was my company Christmas party.

We met at the owner of my companies house for drinks and our secret Santa exchange before heading to Morton’s Steakhouse in West Palm.

Doesn’t Huck look fancy with his sweater vest and red wine?

And Saturday, I worked on Christmas Crafts and watched Football.

DIY Ornament Frame (1)

For the ornament frame, I bought an 8×10 frame and ornaments from the Dollar Store and hot glued them together. Now, I just need a picture of us.

DIY Christmas Tree Skirt

My other project was a tree skirt for our Christmas tree. Last year, I found directions for a DIY ruffle Tree Skirt on Pinterest {Are you following me on Pinterest?? You should!}. I had a box of leftover fabric from our wedding reception and thought this would be a perfect way to reuse the fabric and have a tree skirt with more meaning. It took me about 4 hours total from cutting the fabric into 2” pieces to hot gluing everything together. The other lady used an old tree skirt, but I just used my old skirt as a template and made one with plain white muslin fabric. I didn’t want to waste my original skirt if my project didn’t work out. I wish it was just a little bigger. I may go in and add one more layer to the end… Maybe. Hot gluing burlap SUCKS!

It doesn’t really match the tree, but it’s special and I like it! I still have a bunch of fabric left and plan to make matching stockings for us and the yahoos. That may tie everything together a little more.

  1. Huck did look different. Soup sounds good, we’re fixing chili. We got out and shopped for the small children in the family. Glad everything went well with the Barley dolls and Christmas with your co-workers. Really looking forward to seeing you both, and the grand dogs. Love You and enjoy you day.
