Burr!!! I say! BURRR!

It was 66 in our house this morning.
Needless to say it was very hard
to pry off the blankets and get out of bed today!
BUT I am happy that the highs are in the 70's all week!
And sunny!
In honor of this early fall.....SOUP!

My favorite soup!
AND it is way healthy tooooooo!
I thought I shared it before but cannot find in on the blog so here it is:

Trust me! I don't like veggie soups, but I love this one!!!

Chicken & Veggie Soup
4 1/2 chicken breast or a bag of Schwan's fajita chicken(yummmm!)
1 onion chopped fine
1 bunch green onions
1-2 stalk celery chopped
6 carrots chopped or a bag of already grated
1 can bamboo shoots w/liquid
1 can water chestnuts w/liquid
1-2 16 oz. can chopped tomatoes (I use the kind with basil and oregano)
2 cubes chicken bouillon
lemon pepper
minced garlic
chopped parsley
dump in some salsa if you like it a little spicy!!!

If you want it more soupy than chunky add some chicken broth and use both cans of tomatoes.

Cook chicken and onion, add tomatoes, and seasoning, add veggies and cook till done.

I need something way healthy to balance out all the chocolate Twizzlers!

That sounds really yummy - and perfect for our crazy early fall-like weather!!

Thanks for the soup recipe. I've heard how 'cool' your summer has been from Mom. Never has that happened while growing up. If it helps, August is always SO warm here in NC. I couldn't wait for a potential "cool down". :)

your recipe looks great, but do you need to add water?

Sounds good, but perhaps too many veggies for my fam!! It was cold and I am soo not ready!

It has been cool!! I hate not knowing what to dress the kiddos in for school! Not the August weather we are used to around here!

PS. LOVE the photos you shared with me. I can't remember if I told you that or not, but if I already did........ it's worth repeating!! :-)

Rebecca told me you did a "photo shoot" for her! I'm dying to see them, but Rebecca insists that she gets to see them first, so I will resist the temptaion to ask you for a sneak peek!!

(aka your photo fan!) :-)
