Recent Eats

Here are some recent (and tasty) eats:French toast! With maple syrup :)

Butternut squash soup. Perfect for fall.

Honey baked tofu.

Banana zucchini bread. A delicious way to use up extra zucchini and bananas.

Biscuit chicken pot pie. Recipe to come? Possibly.. if anyone is interested.

That’s all I have for recent eats. My eats haven’t been too adventurous lately. Lots of quick stuff like Lara Bars, fruit, and leftovers = what I pack for lunch/snacks at school. Why yes, I pack my lunch and I’m in college. It saves $$!

Speaking of school, I’m off to study some Spanish. I have my first Spanish test of the semester on Wednesday. EEK. 

Adiós ;)

Bible verse of the day: “Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.” Isaiah 46:4

6 ingredient leftover soup

I’m pretty sure one of the best aspects of Thanksgiving is the abundance of leftovers. Since Thursday I have had countless plates of “Thanksgiving dinner” all over again. I’m not sick of turkey yet!

It can get boring to eat the same dinner over and over again, so I made a simple soup out of leftover turkey.

Leftover Turkey Soup

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 onion, chopped

4 stalks celery, chopped

3 carrots, sliced

6 cups chicken broth

2 cups turkey breast

Directions: Saute the vegetables in a pan in the olive oil until soft and add pinch of salt and pepper. Pour  the broth into the pan and add the turkey. Bring to a boil, cover, and simmer for 1 hour.

Enjoy with other leftovers, like mashed potatoes + gravy!

I hope everyone is having a nice Sunday. I went to church this morning and now I’m working on homework (I go back to school tomorrow). I might go bowling later with Jimmy or walk Lola, though it is raining out-ugh.

Do you love leftovers? Do you do anything fun with them?!
