Wednesday Dinner

I am making the Cheesesteak soup for dinner tonight. I was going to take pics of all the steps of the prep work and all but I got half way through it all and remembered I wanted to take pics for my blog, OOPS! I'll try to take a pic of the finished soup. I didnt buy the bread bowls, but I did buy a round loaf of Artisan Bread, Multigrain Boule, I've never ate that kind before so I hope it is good. I'll slice it up and warm it up a little and serve it with the soup. I'm making a carrot cake for dinner. It's box mix, Duncan Hine's Decadent Carrot Cake http://www.duncanhines.com/carrotcake/. It is in the oven now and my house smell SO good. I didn't even know they made a cake like this. I just happened to be looking in the cake mixes the other day in the grocery store and there it was on the bottom shelve. I got a can of cream cheese frosting to on the cake. In case anyone missed the Cheesesteak Soup recipe here it is:
