Cream Cheese Chicken Soup – Thick creamy chowder with a delicious filling of carrots, potatoes and chicken. Cream cheese and milk lends smooth texture to this soup and the flavor is phenomenal.
This is seriously one of the best soups I’ve had in months. So good in fact that I wish I had tripled the recipe. Every one of the kids wanted seconds. Now that’s some good stuff!
We are big soup eaters in our house. Pretty much a week can’t go by that I’m not fixing up some soup. And this one is definitely a keeper. And I’m pretty sure it’s gonna make it’s rounds at least once a month. I’m totally hooked!
My sweet 10 year daughter came alongside me and helped peel potatoes and stir and anything else I asked her to do. I just absolutely love her willing spirit. Do you have anyone in your life like that? Someone who truly inspires you. I’m so happy to say that in my case it’s my daughter.
She consistently gives her time, her abilities, her listening ear to everyone around here. She won’t think twice about offering something she has if she knows you would like it. I’m so proud to be her mother. And I know God has a great plan for this young woman’s life. So blessed to be around her every day.
I know it’s Monday. And call me weird if you want to but I’m sort of glad. I like Mondays. It’s my one day where I usually stay home. And I also get the most accomplished; bread, laundry, cooking and so much more. I guess I like it so much because I feel good about what I’ve got done. Other days I feel like I’m aimlessly going from one task to another without actually completing anything. Anyone else know that feeling?
Well here’s to a Monday of great accomplishments!
Til we meet and eat again,
