It's the month of LOVE. The house is filled with hearts. 

I LOVE the simplicity of this soup. Just some basic ingredients and a box of alphabet pasta. Surprise your children, parent, spouse, friend or even a co-worker with some alphabet soup. Spell out their name, or in this case, I said "I love you".

Homemade chicken stock
 (or just buy some pre-made chicken soup)
and, of course, Alphabet Pasta cooked

I'm getting ready to party with Laurie on February 10th. Can't wait Laurie!!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello, I'm Debbie.I enjoy hiking, kayaking, cross country skiing and snowshoeing in the Adirondack Mountains (thus Mountain Breaths). I live in Upstate NY with my supportive husband and have three precious sons..


  1. Fun! I wish they would make the pasta letters a little bigger.
    We used to use them in school for projects, hard for the little fingers to handle.
    Thank you for putting the St. Patricks Day blog Crawl on your side bar. I appreciate it!

    1. I agree that the pasta letters could be a little bigger. It was not easy getting them on that spoon!

  2. Hope you had a restful but fun vacation. Glad you are back. This soup looks delicious and the I Love You is so cute and a good idea.---- Shannon

    1. Thanks Shannon! I'll be joining your Cozy little party on Monday ;o)

  3. Cute post! Soup is one of my favorites for lunch!

  4. Cute soup! I don't know, I like the smaller letters, you can make longer sentences?

  5. That is so sweet, Debbie, and what a cute idea! I'll have to make some for Mack :) I love the soup bowl too.

  6. What a sweet and wonderful idea! Debbie, thank you for sharing, I love tips like this!


I'm so happy you decided to stop by my blog. Please leave a comment as I enjoy hearing from each and every one of you!
