Xmas Cats




Just a few funny Xmas animals. I made some chicken soup yesterday and Hubby made a stuffed pork roast- we had so much we called my parents and sister over to join. (his parents already had plans) I am still working on my recipes, I got a bit behind. This is how I made my soup...
I boiled 3 chicken breast (frozen family bag kind) for about 10 minutes.
Chopped 2 large carrots, about 4 stalks of celery, one huge potato, and about 1/3 of a large onion. I put all of this in the crock pot on high, poured in a can of chicken broth and about 3 cans of water. Added a can of cream of chicken soup. Oh and after the chicken was done boiling I chopped the chicken and then added some of the water from that. Threw in some frozen peas, some crushed rosemary, salt and pepper- the amounts are to your liking. I let this sit all day 11:00-5:30- stirred every once in awhile, mostly out of curiosity. You can add lots of other things to your liking, but I like to use this as a base and go from there. This is a nice soup to warm the tummy, it freezes well, reheats well. I will be back with some more recipes- good ones to take to parties, maybe a few drinks ones too. Remember to let me know if you posted any on your blog, I'm making a list. Thanks!

Oh that sounds like some yummy soup! I just may have to come back later and make it!
If you want a yummy drink for Christmas, google the recipe for a poinsettia drink. I make the one with cranberry juice, triple sec, and champagne. Yum!!
