Bean and Bacon Soup

I got out of work a little on the early side today, the girl child had the day of school, and we had a few errands to run.
Sounds like a plan to me!

I went home and picked her up. Our first stop was for a slice of pizza for lunch.
We forgot how HUGE the take-out slices are at this particular restaurant. It is the equivalent of 2 large slices.
Needless to say, we didn't finish. Got a box and brought them home.

Next stop was our local Marshall's. We have the fortune/misfortune (depending on if you are asking us or hubby) of having one right at the end of our street. We are there all the freaking time! On our list was birthday present(s) for a cute little cousin and a couple of things the girl child needed.
Score on both counts!

We did spy a really spiffy pair of boots.
Debating running back over there tomorrow.
Should really try them on. I might hate them.
Only one way to find out.

Boring stops came next. Nothing you want to hear about.
Hubby was home when we got there...and was oh-so-very psyched to see left over pizza. Apparently lunch wasn't on his agenda for the day.

Moments like that, with my girl, even doing mundane tasks, makes my heart sing.

2-3 Slices of bacon, fried and chopped

1 Can kidney beans
