New Perspective…

So, this week has brought about a new change, new outlook and new menu. 


I have been freshly inspired by new blogs and new foods and everything so far has been very well received at home! It has been a pleasant challenge. 


Karina is my  new favorite blogger. Her passion for food and for eating healthy has been such a refreshment to me this week. She has inspired me to try some new foods and man have they been worth the effort! We had the sour cream chicken enchiladas earlier in the week and they were finger lickin’ good. Don’t take any shortcuts, either… make the enchilada sauce homemade, too. Muir Glen Fire Roasted tomatoes are now my favorite food and I can actually buy them here in rural KY. Amazing. 

Today, I made a Chicken and Rice Soup that the hubby proclaimed is the “best soup he’s had”. That’s huge from him. I basically boiled some chicken tenders in a box of Swanson’s Natural Goodness chicken stock. Add in some carrots, celery, pepper and a few cloves of garlic. (The recipe called for leeks and Thyme but I didn’t have them.) Let them simmer down until tender. Make a roux with some butter and whatever type of flour you have available, add in some milk until it thickens then add to the chicken mixture. Finish it off with a few tablespoons of dry white wine and bam! There’s your soup. Yum-O!


We had the second hayride of the week this morning and it was very chilly and windy. Thus the soup. 


Cold days always call for soup!
