Brilliant!
Thanks a lot for the recipe of the soup, a clever way to use leftovers and eat plenty of vegetables.
And thank you for the shawlette pattern, perfect for a last minute gift.
I hope that you had a great birthday party: 40 is a milestone, life is getting better and better, trust me!

Happy Birthday, Larissa!

Thank you for the soup method and shawlette "recipe". I like the fiddle with recipes too, especially soup.

I like the quote at the end of your post.

Fran

How weird is that, I just turned 40 on Saturday! (And also have a 6 year old daugter...) A very happy birthday to you. I'm not sure I felt quite so enthusiastic about it, but I have had a wonderful weekend of special occasions. Thank you for sharing your lovely blog ideas.

Rose

Happy birthday! What a great outlook you have! The shawlette is lovely; also the sweater you have on--did you make that also? Enjoy the week!

Meg Evans

Happy, happy birthday, friend! I just love your outlook on life and on the coming year. I will have to borrow your beautiful philosophy. And I'm going to have to go find that Libby sweater I had started on a few months ago and finish it up for my oldest girlie! I love that shawlette--and I love the blue cardi you're wearing under it, too! I wish you a wonderful birthday, Larissa!

Happy birthday--I turned forty at the beginning of the year--it's been a blast so far! Thanks for the link to the shawlette, yours is gorgeous, I may need to add that to my queue. :)

Happy Birthday Larissa! I hope it is a year filled with joy and blessings. Before you know it your little girl will be snitching your sweaters to wear. Your soup looks wonderful. I need to try this over the Christmas break. the shawlette is just beautiful....love the colors! Have a wonderful week friend!

Andrea

As always your recipe/method looks delicious and thank you very sharing!! A very happy birthday to you!! Love the shawlette....I totally agree with knitting for the kids while they are small (which is why almost everything I knit is for them)...they do grow so fast.

Beth

Happy Birthday !!!!! Your soup and knitting look great and I love your resolve for the new year. Your quote is great!!!!!

Denise

Happy Birthday!!! Welcome to the the 40 club too.

Don't you just love Trader Joe's? Your soup does sound very good and warm.

Beautiful knitting as usual.

Jodi

I made a similar soup a few weeks ago -- after you posted your recipe. It is very yummy. We are very much in a soup-mode around here. I could eat it every night of the week.

Love the shawl. So classy.

Courtney

Happy, happy birthday! I wish you the best as you begin this new decade :-)

PS - Your shawl is just gorgeous!

Nancy

Thanks for the gifts to us on your birthday! Love, love the soup making ideas. Totally up my alley.

I caught your shawl on flickr and had to come over here to see it too--incredibly beautiful.

And cheers to loving your age!! Happiest of birthdays to you!

Happy Birthday ~ I agree with you to have good health and a lovely family ~ what a blessing and no better gift.

We eat lots of soup all year around ~ your recipe sounds delicious ~ thanks for sharing!

Love your shawlette ~ the colors are stunning on you. I'm a huge fan of Noro Kuryeon and have tons to knit a blanket....someday... Ha!

P.S. LA is having unusual rain (Pasadena - your old stomping grounds?) had record rainfall.... I'm hoping to leave for the holidays tomorrow and just hope the mountain roads around me hold up.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!

I love the fact that you embrace your age. That's awesome. I need you to rub off on me.

That soup...wow.

The knitted goods...stellar.

beki

Happy Birthday, Larissa!!!

Had I been around blog land in recent days, I'd have included a little extra something for you in your package...but I do have your mailing address :)

Kathy

Happy Birthday, Larissa!

Karen

Happy Birthday, Lariss!
I love that you use a 'method' instead of a 'recipe.' I'm sure that allows for more of whatever goodness happens to be in the garden or the pantry, and less worrying about specifics. I'll have to try it!

Kim

Happy Birthday! I love your new shawl. And that soup looks delicious. I'll have to try it out in my big red pot. :)

I'm guessing that you don't eat sausage if you keep a Kosher kitchen? So, you won't be cooking up any Sausage Soup? :) My mom is actually Jewish and my dad was a Catholic school Catholic so I grew up with both religions. My 97 year old grandmother (who is still alive) is an Auschwitz survivor. Your Hanukkah post below brought back memories.

PS...do you shop at the TJ's in Va Beach, by chance?

Dodi

Larissa-- thank you for sharing this recipe! It's printed and in my pile of upcoming 2011 meals!

Sending you much love for your birthday! So glad to have found your little space here. I admire your knitting and sewing, always aspiring to some day be as talented as you. :)

jane

Happy Belated Birthday! You will love your forties!

Hanna

I was so excited when, sleepily one morning, I was scrolling through Google Reader and saw -- wow, on a blog that I read all the time -- a Storm Cloud Shawlette!! I can't believe it's taken me so long to post and say that I LOVE your version! It looks so bold and vibrant in a heavier yarn.
