Turkey Noodle Soup and Gollum's Corn Muffins

Part of my post this week is a recipe from our favorite foodie herself, Michael at Designs by Gollum. Be sure to visit her blog to see what's cooking on the farm this week, and to see the list of other participants.

Even though the weather is turning warmer, we still love soup at our house. Hubby has been making deep-fried turkeys for us a lot and I've been using the leftovers for turkey noodle soup...yum! A good soup is perfect with Gollum's Bacon and Chive Corn Muffins. You can find the recipe HERE.

Lately I've been serving soup in covered sugar bowls that resemble miniature tureens. This one is Johnson Brothers Old Britain Castles.
