Campbell's V8 Southwestern Corn Soup Review

I'm having trouble getting started again today, with the blog that is. I think if I could find an interesting way to begin each post it would be simpler. I usually begin by saying a bit about the current morning and then have trouble backing up to the day before. My mornings are usually pretty much the same, so making it interesting is rather difficult. I get up, let the dogs out, feed the dogs, and make breakfast. Sometimes even breakfast can be boring. I try to change it up a little, but lately, I'm limited. Yesterday I had a smoothie and as usual it involved a banana, but to change it up a little, I went with a Chocolate Monkey Smoothie. I hadn't had one for a little while. It was very good.

I had a morning snack instead of an early lunch. I was craving something sweet, which I should have ignored. I had a small piece of birthday cake in the frig that was calling my name. I added a single scoop of vanilla ice cream, which was more than enough for the cake. Do you like how I played that down? It wasn't as bad as it could have been....

Because of my morning snack, I had a late lunch. I made an Amy's Black Bean Enchilada with beans and rice.

Amy's dinner's really hit the spot. I checked out Amy's products online and they have quite a selection, some things I'd like to try, but haven't found locally.

Dinner had a Mexican theme as well. I tried another Campbell's V8 soup in a box, their Southwestern Corn Soup.

As I suspected, it has a somewhat sweet taste from the corn with roasted red peppers and a slightly spicy, but not hot, southwestern seasoning. I also had an Amy's bean & rice burrito with my soup. I added a pinch of salt to my soup, since I wasn't so fond of the sweetness of the soup.

I wasn't sure how I felt about the soup when I first tried it, but the more I ate of it, the better I liked it. It went perfectly with the burrito. The soup has a creamy base with pieces of corn and bits of peppers. I like that there's a full serving of vegetables in each serving, that's two per box. I also got their potato leek soup which they don't show online. Lucas tried it and he thought it was good too. I'll try and do a review on it later when I get another box.

I'm giving the corn soup 4 stars. I first thought I'd give it 3, but as stated, I really liked it after eating more than just a few bites.

Another sweet splurge for the day, a Russell Stover Coconut Cream Santa.

Plus a few handfuls of Emeralds Sweet & Salty dark chocolate peanut butter mixed nuts off camera, which I had while watching a movie. I watched Beastly starring Vanessa Hudgens, Alex Pettyfer, & Mary-Kate Olsen. It was sort of a modern fictional Beauty and the Beast type movie. I gave the movie 4 stars. I expected a little more at the ending, but it was good and I enjoyed it.

Now I need to close this up and get it posted, with a few interruptions and a little more content than usual, I am late getting this one out. Sorry. Happy Thursday!!!
