|Starting the soup|
Last night we had tomato & chicken soup with grilled cheese sandwiches. I made a really delicious and easy soup (idea courtesy of my friend Gretchen) Just saute some onion, garlic and other veggies if you want - I put carrots and peppers. Add a couple of large cans of tomatoes - any kind - and a few cups of broth or water and simmer for awhile. Then puree the whole thing. I used an immersion blender. Then I added leftover shredded chicken and blended a tiny bit more so the chicken was small but still a little chunky. Add a little cream if you want at the end. That is it - of course you can leave out the chicken if you want - I needed to use some that I had in the fridge. Would be even better in the winter!
For breakfast this morning, I made eggs with soldiers - soft boiled eggs with toast strips. (I only served runny yolks because they were fresh, local eggs. I personally would be afraid to do it with regular grocery store eggs) My kids loved it. My 8 yr. old said it was the best breakfast he has ever had in his life!
|Egg Salad Sandwiches|
I made egg salad (made homemade mayo - 1st time - I thought it was pretty quick and easy) and kids had egg salad sandwiches, watermelon and grapes. David had cheese quesadilla (with pimento cheese) and I had egg salad in a tortilla. I also found some Baked Kettle Chips that are potatoes, oil and salt only. Kids and hubby were thrilled to have chips!
Only a few more days!
