Beef and Vegetable Soup

Cannellini beans and Spinach with Progresso Chicken Noodle Soup

Cannellini beans and Spinach with Progresso Chicken Noodle Soup

 

 

Time for some delicious, top quality ingredients, all white chicken meat, and antibiotic free Progresso Light Chicken noodle soup that I jazzed up a bit. When I say jazzed up, I mean I added beans and fresh spinach to make this soup even more heavenly. The other night I went to Walmart to grab a few things along with Progresso Light Chicken Noodles Soup to have when I need quick, healthy lunch or dinner choice and obviously, a bit of comfort.

Like most people on this planet we want to be fit and in shape, so eating this hearty, delicious and a great quality ingredient soup will definitely help me get to my goal sooner without starving myself. I love Progresso soup and there are a variety of delightful and healthy choices, but chicken noodle soup holds a special place in my heart. Why you might ask? Since I have grown up eating chicken noodle soup before a supper practically each and every day and that was an absolute necessity, no questions ask. On top of it, it is really super good for you.

I think it’s just amazing to get childhood memories and transfer them onto your own kids, making a tradition and memories for them as well. Walmart is always well stocked up, so why not shop where I know I can find it easily without any problems.


This is one of my favorite recipes to change this delectable soup into something other than what’s expected. It is already delightful, however, including spinach and beans make this soup considerably more hearty. You may include, of course, chickpeas (garbanzo beans), different sorts of beans or vegetables, yet I gotta tell ya’ this soup is really great all alone as well.

Baked Potato Soup

The holiday season, I don’t know if I like it or it‘s just getting crazier each year that I want to hibernate until it‘s over. If I could, I would trust me, but my kids. Ah! They just love the whole holiday concept; decorating, Christmas songs and movies, presents, food, etc. They made us get a tree to decorate just before Thanksgiving. We really try to give them every year what they expect and nothing […]

Cabbage & Barley Rice Soup

Cabbage & Barley Rice Soup

Cabbage & Barley Rice Soup #soup #homemade #recipe #healthy
   

I was so excited that my garden produced beautiful veggies even though it is not is much as I expected, still it was fantastic to pick some fresh produce and cook with it for my family. Those green monsters, as well as bunnies and birds, ate a lot of it but that’s ok, next time I will be more prepared as this was my first real-real garden. 

Most of the ingredients that you see in the pictures are either from our garden or organic. By the way, those yummy red tomatoes are from my neighbor. They have the sweetest and juiciest tomatoes ever, so he always brings us during summer time. Don’t I have the best neighbor? I just wish mine turn out like that. Seriously, they are so good that I eat them like an apple.  
I really hope you give this simple soup a try because it is delicious, but I understand that it is not everybody’s cup of tea. I need something spicy with it for example to give more heat and flavor, my daughter loves it with onions and boys to dip bread in and eat it with pickles. If you are cabbage lover, this soup is for you, plus it is very healthy and light. On the other hand, you CAN add bacon, smoked sausage/meat in it to give you that smoky flavor. We love it like that too, and it is not bad at all however since we try to have at least 3 days a week clean meals, I omitted bacon or any meat. So it is truly very healthy soup!

These few days have been little colder than usual. Actually, it’s very unusual to have a temp in 70’s F in mid of July so comforting soup is just what we needed. 
If you don’t like barley riceyou can add few cubed potatoes, brown rice, lentils or regular white rice, but we love barley so that’s why I am adding it most often. 

So let’s get cookin’.
