Grilled Tomato Soup

Grilled Tomato Soup
I saw a recipe on Eating Well’s website for huevos rancheros verdes.   But the serving size was for six people, and considering the fact that no one else in my family would touch that dish with a ten foot pole, I customized it for one.   I was a bit leery when I saw pinto beans, but I actually loved it!  I had two corn tortillas,...

Buffalo Chicken Soup and Best Chicken!

Buffalo Chicken Soup and Best Chicken!
I have two ladies to thank for my lunch and dinner yesterday – but I’ll get to that in a minute!   One of things I got in my BSI win from Megan was Trader Joe’s cranberry instant oatmeal – I loved it!  You can’t tell from this picture, but its in the bottom!  I had 4 ounces of diced honeycrisp apple (on sale for .99...

Red Pepper Soup

Red Pepper Soup
I was back to the good ole egg/cheese/ham sammie for breakfast yesterday – except this time my cheese of choice was pepper jack.  My store had it on sale for $1.99 a pound!!  So spicy and good 😀 Does anyone subscribe to Bon Appetit?  I am actually really starting to like this magazine.  In the front they have people write in asking for recipes they’ve...

BSI – Garlic – Roasted Garlic Soup with Parmesan Toast

BSI – Garlic – Roasted Garlic Soup with Parmesan Toast
When Jenn picked garlic as the BSI ingredient this week, my mind went into so many different directions!  I kept trying to come up with a spicy hot garlic cheese dip, but it just wasn’t coming together.  I knew I wanted the garlic roasted, so yesterday I roasted 20 cloves of garlic.  Bake in foil in muffin tin for one hour at 400 degrees.  Don’t...

Sweet Potato Bisque and Filet Mignon with Texas Toast

Sweet Potato Bisque and Filet Mignon with Texas Toast
Before I get to the delicious food, I want to wish my MIL a speedy recovery – she had knee replacement surgery today and while the surgery went very well, she’ll probably have a tough couple weeks ahead of her – send good thought her way! 😀  Breakfast was a good ole bagel sammie – this version is a smaller Lender’s bagel with egg white, spinach...

Sopa Azteca ala Rick Bayless

Sopa Azteca ala Rick Bayless
I am posting the original recipe, but I did have to make a couple of substitutions – as I like a creamy (not tomato chunky) sauce, I used a small can of tomato sauce and one can of V8, and of course, left out the onions! Recipe from Frontera Grill/Topolobampo Serves 4 to 6 Like guacamole, tortilla soup has a place, I feel, in practically...

Best Grilled Cheese and Goat Cheese Broccoli Soup

Best Grilled Cheese and Goat Cheese Broccoli Soup

Cauliflower Soup and Hugh Jass Salad

Cauliflower Soup and Hugh Jass Salad
Yep, trying to be a 20-something by telling you I had a hugh jass salad – every time I read that on a blog I laugh!  I got this “lite” salad dressing at Big Lots of all places – 70 calories for 2 tablespoons, so flavorful and cheap – $2.00 a bottle!  It’s brand name is Cape Cod: So I took the 3 servings of last...

South Beach Thai Meatball Soup or 2 Pt. WW Soup!

This soup recipe could not have been easier, since there are so few ingredients: 8 ounces ground sirloin 1 tablespoon hot sauce (I used Thai hot sauce) 3 cups baby spinach 8 cups chicken broth (I use soup base which comes in a jar – only 10 calories per 1 cup of broth) crushed pepper to taste per one cup serving: 96 calories, 5 fat,...
