Soup and Picasa

March 18, 2009

I got my idea for posting pictures of my meals from my friend Sophie, on her blog, "Burp and Slurp," but I've always wondered how her pictures are so much brighter and better looking than mine! She informed me that she uses a free program called Picasa and I love it! My pictures DO look brighter, though it will probably me a while to get mine looking as good as hers.
This is a crockpot cream of broccoli soup I made about a week ago from my old standard cookbook, "Fix-It and Forget-It Lightly" by Phyllis Good. If you can't tell by now, I really like broccoli! I had leftover chicken, so I added that, but the original recipe is vegetarian. I also made corn muffins and crumbled them up into the soup-after taking the pretty picture, of course.
