Shrimp, Tomatoes, Basil, and Voila!

Italian Stuffed Peppers

I made up an awesome recipe tonight using a few ingredients we had on hand. We’re going out of town tomorrow, so I didn’t want to have to buy a bunch of groceries. Plus, we’ve been eating so much heavy food over the holidays that we were both in the mood for something light and fresh! This hit the spot!

Chicken Tortilla Soup

I was inspired to make chicken tortilla soup one cold and rainy night this week. I had most of the ingredients on hand to make the base for a soup, and just added some of hubby’s and my favorite “Mexican” ingredients. It turned out wonderfully.
