I don't know about you, but colds seem to stick around for a long time in our house. All soups, especially, penicillin soup, seem to satisfy everyone in our house whether it is to warm us up or mend a nasty cold. Penicillin soup is a perfect blend of comfort with a kick of flavor. The recipe is below. Enjoy!
3 carrots chopped
2 celery stalks chopped
2 cups extra wide egg noodles
1 cup broccoli florets
1/2 cup chopped onion
3-4 cups Swanson chicken broth
3-4 cups water
Salt and pepper to taste
A dash of red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon ground thyme
1 cup shredded chicken
Wash, peel and cut the carrots, cut the celery and add ALL ingredients to a large pot. I typically buy a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store and easily tear all the chicken off. I also buy frozen broccoli florets. Use equal parts chicken broth and water. In most pots, I use 3 cups of each. Heat to boiling and when vegetables are tender, serve. It is sure to warm you up!
I don't know about you, but I have been loving Country Livinglately. This home featured in Country Living is so light and bright, yet very cozy too. The nursery is just gorgeous. It makes me want to have another one...nursery that is;). Enjoy looking at this beautiful home!
We had a wonderful Christmas season this year. We enjoyed the Train Ride to Christmas Town, Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens, Riding thru McAdenville to see the lights, Christmas programs and a parade, seeing the Leonard Bearnstein Orchestra downtown Charlotte and Paul and I even managed to get a date in. Christmas is just so magical and special with our children. I hope you enjoyed your holiday season.
As with every new year comes new goals. This year, along with the normal personal goals, I have a couple house goals. I would like to tackle a few rooms that I have not touched since we moved in. I am a firm believer in taking your time decorating before just jumping in, but I also don't want things to sit idle either. A little progress is better than none, right? I am documenting this so I will hopefully keep myself accountable.
So, these are the rooms I plan to spend some time in along with my inspiration for each.

But before I can tackle these, I vow to get our garage organized...
