|On Our Last Flight of the Day, about 15 hours into traveling|
We had a great time visiting Idaho, and Austin got to spend some quality time with his cousins, which is always fun! I loved having so many adults around, so I was able to go to the gym a few times, and Ben and I were able to go to a movie (American Hustle, it was good, but a little too long).
Since we've returned from vacation, I've been craving, and making a lot of, soup! Soup and chili I should say. Maybe it's the colder weather here (it is supposed to be Minnesota style cold here this week, I thought I had escaped this!).
These are the recipes I've been loving lately. They're great for making huge pots that warrant a bunch of leftovers for easy work lunches that week, or to freeze to mix it up in the future.
- Gimme Some Oven Chipotle Chicken and Rice Soup Spicy Alert!
- The Pioneer Woman Corn and Cheese Chowder Lightened up with 1% Milk and 3/4 cup of each cheese
- Iowa Girl Eats Cheesy Pepper Jack Potato Chowder I made this New Years Eve, and it is so filling! Definitely a whole meal in itself, and the whole family loved it. Also lightened up with 1% milk, instead of the called for 2%
- Kraft Three Bean Chili My go to, it's always a winner!
