Chicken Tortilla Soup

I'm not sure about you, but I love a nice, warm bowl of soup when the weather is cool.  Even though it's March, and I live in Florida, we've had some chilly temps this week (sorry Spring Breakers).  So last night I made one of my favorite recipes, Chicken Tortilla Soup.  It's tasty, spicy and best of all, so simple to make!

Chicken Tortilla Soup

12 oz can white chicken breast
15 oz can black beans drained and rinsed
14 oz can mexican corn (or regular whole corn like shown above) drained
 1 can of Rotel-your choice of heat (I prefer the Hot for a nice kick)
1 can chicken broth
1 can cream of chicken soup
8 oz Velveeta cheese, diced
Tortilla chips (optional)

Start by adding all of the ingredients (except the diced cheese) into a stockpot, paying careful attention to which cans should be drained.  When you get to the black beans, remember to drain AND RINSE before adding them to the pot.

I like to buy the chicken breast chunks so I usually separate the chicken a little before I add it into the rest of the mix.  Once you've combined all of the ingredients, stir and let the mixture heat through on medium heat.

 When heated through, add in the diced Velveeta cheese and stir until melted.

That's it.  You're done!  Scoop yourself up a bowl and enjoy by it itself or with tortilla chips. 

In other news, our Remington (Remi) turned 4 years old on Sunday!  It's only been a little under 3 years since we got him from the shelter, but we love him like he's been ours forever!  Here is our sweet guy on his birthday.  Isn't he handsome? :)

New Coffee Table

After more than a year of debate, I've finally decided on and ordered us a new coffee table! As mentioned here , there were several styles I was considering.  However, in the end the tufted ottoman came out on top.  Not only was it versatile, so it can be used for years to come, but it also will be good for when we have kiddos down the road.  I can't tell you how many people I know who have had to either remove their coffee tables for the safety of their kids' noggins or have had to add those tacky corner protectors.  I did not want to invest in a new piece only to have to stow it away down the road.  So this seemed to be the perfect solution.  And thanks to my Joss & Main membership, it turned out to be the perfect price too. I was all set to order a tufted ottoman from Ballard Designs.  I had already received a swatch sample of the fabric I selected and everything.  But a few days later, I got a notification from Joss & Main of a sale event called The Tufted C

Auden's First Birthday-Pumpkins and Pearls

It's only been 6 months now, but better late than never, right? Auden turned one on November 11th and we celebrated at our home with close family and friends.  The theme of the party was pumpkins and pearls.  Pun'kin is one of the nicknames I called her when she was little and pearls bring a girly flair and tied into our reveal party when we found out we were having a girl so it seemed perfect. I had so much fun creating her invitation and all of the party printables.  And for a little extra adornment, the invites were tied with jute twine and placed in scalloped envelope. Invites available for purchase here . Here's the sweet birthday girl in her homemade hat.  I love how the bow on top turned out :)  Her birthday stats poster is now available here .

Food for Thought

I apologize for my absence these last few days. I started a new job last week as a event planner consultant for the local paper and have been quite busy. Nevertheless, I'm back now. First I'd like to share a yummy recipe I discovered last week. In case you don't know, I am not a big veggie lover. So when I find a good recipe that has veggies in it, I get really excited. Such was the case last week. My hubby and I buy zucchini on almost every grocery visit. However, the only thing we usually put it in is a stir fry recipe we like to make. This is good for me because the zucchini taste is masked by peppers, teriyaki sauce and chicken. I can eat it. Well last Wednesday I wasn't in the mood for stir fry, but I really needed to use my zucchini before it went bad. So I went on a search for a good zucchini recipe. And what should I stumble upon, but zucchini chips. And they were very good! Here is the recipe. Ingredients" 1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs 1/4
