We have one week left in Birmingham, which means we're working hard on finals and using up everything in our food storage (not very hard to do since we don't have much food).

Except for when we were in Paris, we have made a nutritious, home-made dinner every night. No take out for us! Our budget couldn't afford it, and our stomachs simply didn't want it anymore.

We've been experimenting, and tonight we made what was supposed to be an "All American Cheeseburger Soup." Raymond called our version the "supposed-to-be-cheeseburger soup" but still loved it.

Here's a picture approximately what it looked like, but we left out the potatoes and didn't have any pickles. I thought it really did taste like a cheeseburger (Raymond didn't)! We made little tiny Yorkshire pizzas to go with it, using some of the tomato sauce and meat. This was a revelation. Yorkshire Pizzas!

Basically the soup was beef, broth, onions, tomatoes, and a lot of cheese. Oh, and some ketchup. We were skeptical of the recipe but gave it a try, I'm glad we did. We've eaten far too much pasta in the past few months. I found the soup on

Time for us to start packing up our rooms and preparing to leave. I'm also working on another surprise for our readers!

"I'll be home for Christmas, you can count on me!"
