I knew that my hubs would be home sooner rather than later last night, so I opted for something from my meal list with a shorter prep time and started in on Tortellini and Zucchini soup (see recipe on Daring to dream in the kitchen tab of this blog). I have made tortellini soup before, but never this one in particular. I found it on what is quickly becoming my new favorite website http://www.eatingwell.com, and it is a low cal version of the soup. What I really loved about it, is that it is chock full of veggies! As I have been getting older, I have been finding more and more fruits and veggies that I hated as a kid that I am now falling in love with. Zucchini for instance. Never a fan as a kid, but it is now 1 of my personal favs.
The soup got as thumbs up from both my husband and myself with 1 exception. while I think I am finally grasping how much salt is enough, I need to learn a little more about fresh herbs. I had one very rosemaryish soup. I had some of the leftovers today at lunch, and having it sit overnight seemed to diffuse the rosemary some and made it a little less fragrant while enjoying. I added a small spring salad to go with the soup for the final product last night. I was quite happy with how it turned out.
For tonight I am attempting a crock pot chicken jambalaya recipe I got from the Skinny Ms. Slow Cooker facebook page. Can't wait to see how it turns out.
In other news, I am off to do an at home work out while the little one sleeps, perhaps some Pilate's today...and then I have a few YouTube tutorials to watch on knitting. Knocking down those resolutions right and left!
