Today has been so nice. My friends, Brooke and Erin, stopped over for lunch and a quick visit. I was so excited for the company. I have known these girls since my days at WJHS, when we were all on the drill team (Cub Kickers)!! I love them both so much! Girl friends are so wonderful to have, I am so fortunate to have them.

This photo is not from today (we do not dress up like this for Friday lunches!!) Erin (left), me in the middle, and Brooke (right)
I decided that I would cook for them today, so I tried out a new recipe today, chicken taco soup. It was so yummy and the recipe is super easy!

chicken (boneless skinless)
package of taco seasoning
1 can chicken broth (or two cups chicken broth)
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can red beans
1 can kidney beans
1 can great white northern beans
Boil your chicken, and in a separate pot saute your onion and garlic, once complete dump all of your other ingredients into the pot!! Yum Yum gimmie some, so easy, only took about 8 minutes to empty everything, and let it simmer for about 1 1/2 hours. It is really good topped with shredded cheese and sour cream. Don't forget your tortilla chips!
Soup is so good on these chilly fall days.

Have any great recipes that do not take that long to prepare? I am working on little Miss Sophia's schedule so it cannot take too much time!!

I am going to go try and rest now, my friend, Rana is in town and today is her birthday! We are going to be celebrating this weekend. Starting tomorrow morning we will be looking a wedding dresses (since she just got engaged) and then her engagement party tomorrow evening! I will be missing my Razorbacks play, but I will be there in spirit! Woo Pig!!

I just could not do a post today without a picture of Sophia!! She is still so small, I feel like her clothes sometimes are just swallowing her!

Have a happy Friday!

Love yal, Caryn
