Boy this week flew by. We had a Retreat from Friday - Monday and the next Retreat started on Thursday and goes to Sunday so we have been non stop. Monday Mark started his vacation so Tuesday we went to Santa Clarita so I could get my birthday facial and massage :-) (thanks to my wonderful friend Shelly). If you live in Santa Clarita and feel like pampering yourself you need to visit RoseMary's Salon her and her husband are wonderful! Wednesday we went to Bakersfield and spent the day spoiling our grand daughter. She is growing way to fast. She already 15 months old.
We are suppose to get hit with another storm tonight. We've had snow flurries off and on all day....they are saying we are suppose to get 1-2" of snow tonight. I hope not! I am so over winter LOL. Just like last weekend the girls are hoping for snow. This group is really hoping they get snowed in. In fact they are the only group that has ever been snowed in so they are hoping for a repeat ;-)
I found this wonderful soup recipe (can't remember where. I really should write down where I find these recipes) if you looking for something easy and YUMMMMMMY to fix in this cold weather
Yield: 3-4 servings
1 tbsp. olive oil
½ cup onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic,
minced½ tsp. dried oregano
1 (15 oz.) can diced tomatoes, with juices
4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth (or chicken broth)
9 oz. tortellini, any variety (fresh or frozen)
3 cups fresh baby spinach, loosely packed Salt and pepper and Grated Parmesan, for serving
In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onions to the pan and cook until beginning to soften, about 5 minutes. Add in the garlic and cook, stirring frequently, just until fragrant, about 1 minute. Mix in the oregano and diced tomatoes. Add the broth to the pot. Bring the mixture to a boil. Add the tortellini to the pot and cook according to the package directions. One minute before the tortellini is fully cooked, stir in the spinach. Remove from the heat. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve warm with grated Parmesan as desired.
