Sweet Moment & A Recipe

Winter has started to set in with cool temperatures and a little bit of snow. Megan was tickled pink when I pointed out that the snow was flying.

Megan loves to craft and create. I see lots of that happening this winter.

She asked if I knew what the above picture was and before I could answer she stated that it was the cross that Jesus died on. Ahh!

I have been using up the last of the Thanksgiving turkey this week. I made a turkey rice soup with carrots on Wednesday.

I diced four large carrots and cooked them in a can of chicken stock, added water to fill up my pan and 2 tsp of chicken bouillon. It let it cook until the carrots were tender and then added my leftover turkey. Season with salt and pepper. Next went in 8 oz of rice. It let it cook and cook until the rice was done and the soup had thickened up. I did have to add additional water several times after I added the rice. It was super easy and the little guy I watch gave it his stamp of approval. Abe is 15 mos and after his second bite he said "ummm, more."

Chuck is off today and it looks to be busy. After Megan goes to school we are hitting the store for our monthly shopping. A few more errands after she is picked up and then in the late afternoon we are headed with my FIL to pick something up for him. Hope you all have a great weekend!
I hope you are taking time to enjoy the simple moments!
