Good Monday Evening!
Ok to start with I have to tell you that my wonderful, amazing, incredible, handsome husband just purchased advanced tickets for New Moon this Friday night!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH OMGosh I am so ecstatic! He is so not looking forward to going at all, that makes me appreciate them even more.
I will see you Friday 11/20 at 9:20pm!!
Ok I’m done, I apologize to you non-Twilighter’s ;).
Today was a fun day! We took off early to Emerald Square Mall to do some Christmas browsing and have a little lunch at Bertucci’s. The hub and I split a Chopped Chicken salad, it was soooo good and so huge.
After shopping and lunch we came back to the casa and watched Monster House. Zachary laughs so hard at that movie, we have to pause it so he can catch his breath. Funny thing is, he laughs during the non-funny parts which in turn makes us laugh. There is nothing better than listening to my guys laugh and play together.
Great afternoon, but it went by so fast! The hubby had class tonight and I had tons of work to catch up on and a house to clean before tomorrow. I pulled a quickie out of my hat tonight and made Girl Gone Healthy Taco Soup! An old stand by, gotta love the fix it and forget it meals!
Girl Gone Healthy Taco Soup:
-1 box low sodium Progresso Chicken Broth
-2 packages Taco seasoning (1 spicy, 1 mild)
-1 cup whole wheat pasta (we used shells)
-2 bags Morning Star Farms Chicken Strips
-1 can of corn, drained and rinsed
-1 can red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
-2 cans (or 1 large) of Rotel chiles and tomato
You’re gonna love this cooking method!!!
In a large pot…..dump everything in, stir and allow contents to come to rolling boil. Allow to boil for about 10 minutes stirring often. Bring temperature down to simmer and allow to thicken. Once pasta is tender your stoup is ready to eat! Ladle up, top with cheese and garnish with tortilla strips! YUMMY
So spicy and so yummy!
For dessert, Apple Walnut Muffins!!!
