Hello Out There...

I was reminded today that I had not updated my blog in a very long time! I think I will return to blogging as a way of relieving stress! Looking at some of the other blogs is an inspiration to do so.

Ready for Spring....

I am soooo ready to spring. Though I love to wake up to freshly fallen snow, I can't help but yearn for fresh buds on the trees, for a glimpse of my tulip tips waking up from the winter. Yea, I'm missing spring.

Spring break is just around the corner, and we are trying to figure out what to do this year. On the list this year are Florida, San Diego, or Mexico. Right now we are leaning toward San Diego. Found a nice deal that included airfare, car, and hotel at Coronado Island. Sounds like a winner to me. If you haven't been there, it's one of my favorite places to visit. The area is just beautiful, with lots of activities for the family.

If you can think of other family friendly trips, please leave me a comment. I am really open to anything right now....

Mexican Chicken Soup...

Of course there is nothing better for a cold than a nice big bowl of chicken soup! My favorite kind of chicken soup is the "Mexican" version called "Caldo de Pollo" - it is so easy to make and taste so so yummy! I've been home with the flu, and finally got myself out of bed and decided that chicken soup was just what I needed. So I ventured out to the grocery store and picked up what I needed. I also made a pot of Mexican rice to go with the soup. My kids love this!

5 chicken drumsticks
5 chicken thighs
2 stalks celery
2 carrots sliced
1 cilantro bunch chopped
1 zucchini sliced
1 small onion sliced
2 potatoes cut into chunks with skin
1/2 head of cabbage cut into bite sized
2 corn on the cob, cut into 2 inch pieces

Serve with warm corn torillas and garnish with a slice of lime.
