A little of this and that...

As I was laid out last week I did have time to catch up some reading, which is never a bad thing! I have several bloggers that I like to read and then of course a book or two and several magazines that I had piled up.

{At this point I realize I am a lot like my mother!!}

 {Let me clarify that is not a bad thing!}

Anyways, I found a few things that I wanted to share here on my blog. Hope you have time to read a few of these....

  • I came across this blog post and appreciated what she had to share about motherhood! I know I am not in her season of motherhood and maybe that is why it spoke to me so much. She closes with one of my favorite Bible verses and I think you will enjoy the post as well -


  • It is no secret that I love College Game Day and if there was a dream job for me it would have been Erin Andrews until now! I LOVE this new ESPN reporter and after reading this post I love her even more...

  • Since we are talking about sports I really could relate to this post by one of my favorite bloggers after a tragic ATM loss this past Saturday....

  • I have found countless things on Pinterest and looked at all kinds of recipes but I came across this one the old fashioned way... a COOKBOOK! Anyways, it was something different and very warm after these cold, rainy days we have been having....
Creamy Chicken Taco Soup:

1 package of Taco seasoning
1 can of corn (I used one can of cream corn and one can of regular corn)
2 cans of Ranch Style Beans
1 can of Rotel
1 can of cream of chicken soup
8 ounces of sour cream (or more if you want it creamier)
2 cans of chicken broth (or 16 oz. chicken stock)
2 chicken breasts boiled (if you boil your chicken you can use the broth plus one can of broth)

I poured everything in the crockpot then shredded my chicken and added it in. I just kept it on low for the afternoon so the flavors could get all mixed together. The recipe I read said to use a rotisserie chicken but I like to boil my own and use the broth. It's up to you!! Brian ate his over Fritos but I like mine over regular tortilla chips. Again, it's up to you! This will make a lot of soup so you will enjoy leftovers or it would be great to take to a party.

So, that's just a few things to pass on to you. The flu has entered our house so this Thanksgiving is shaping up to be all I had imagined!!

  1. I must comment - maybe I will go ahead and get rid of these magazines never opened and start a new collection of them - facebook and blogs have taken up my reading time. Maybe you will find you have some of my good qualities - whatever they may be!
