    Awww it is so cute when your cat has missed you! Mine just gather around the food bowl and meow at me!

    I love soup. Soup is awesome. With bread for dunking ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Haha! Mine usually do that too, but Fat Kitty ALWAYS sits in the window.

    Before I moved out and left my cats with my mom, my older female used t greet me at the door. She’d sit in the front window and watch for me to come home.

    Also, we’re gonna have to try that chowder I think! Looks delicious!

      Get the book! So far it’s really good. And seriously, it was only like 65 cents on Amazon….

    Hi Lisa, is Fat Kitty just a name or is he really fat? Anyway, that’s a cute detail about your furry friend. The Black Bean Corn Chowder dish looks very healthy but I try to stay away from canned stuff and processed foods as much as possible.

      “Fat Kitty” is the nickname I use for him on the blog. I don’t call him that in real life. ๐Ÿ™‚ But he kind of chunky. He could easily lose about 4 pounds!

      The black bean chowder would work great with dried beans, too. It would just take longer.

    This is the 3rd soup recipe I am pulling this week! I use fat-free half and half for my coffee so I would use that I think. Looks nice and hearty and good to package up for lunches at work! Thanks for posting ๐Ÿ™‚

      I had the leftovers for two lunches. They were much better with a little sour cream on top.

    Our dog misses us but our cat tolerates us. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s true but we love him anyway.
