Turkey Orzo Lemon Soup

Turkey-Lemon-Orzo-Soup.jpg 
Sorry I missed posting last week life was rather crazy with well life. I had Thanksgiving shopping, our dryer broke and now I have clothes hanging all over my house on hangers until the 5th of December when the new dryer arrives.My house looks like a laundry mat. That's life that's what all the people say your riding high in April, shot down in May.. Sing along if you like..lol.. I always love a little Sinatra! 
To top it all off  L.J.'s birthday was Monday the 26th and he was so excited to hit the double digits.
A very sad moment for me since my babies are no longer looking like babies but handsome young men!  
Since we had a 27 pound Turkey for Thanksgiving I thought I would share with you a favorite soup in our house. Turkey Lemon Orzo Soup. 
The kids love the small shape and texture of the orzo is soup and well you all know me by now I just ❤ soup. 
It's always cold and wet in Washington so there's no better way to warm up then a nice big bowl of soup!

Hot And Sour Chicken Soup

There's just something about hot soup on a cold fall day and I'm always cold this time of year. Hot bath's, warm blankets and the fireplace are my friend. I thank God every day I married a human furnace to keep me warm or I would freeze, matter of fact I'm not sure how I survived with out him! Not only does he keep me warm but he takes quite a few of the fabulous pictures on the blog, helps prep dinner and supports me in my zany wacky ideas. He really is my Superman! I love you Colt! 
Ok back to the soup! The fam loves  Hot and Sour Soup and just about all Asian food for that matter! This soup isn't overly sour but rather a nice blend of flavors and makes a perfect quick weeknight meal in under 30 minutes. 
If your really looking to please a crowd of hungry kidlets or hungry men folk I like to throw in some Fresh Shrimp Spring Rolls.  
This soup also works well with leftover turkey instead of chicken just add after the mushrooms are softened.

Chicken Or Turkey Casserole With Garlic Cheddar Biscuit Crust

Chicken Or Turkey Casserole With Garlic Cheddar Biscuit Crust
 Chicken Or Turkey Pot Pie!  Add cheddar biscuits to the top and I am in heaven! 

The filling can easily be made ahead of time and topped with the biscuits right before baking! Hello deliciousness! Come to Mama! 

When I was little Granny would regularly make Chicken Pot Pies in the cute little ramekins. It was always a favorite. But this is a little bit easier to make than individual Chicken Pot Pies.

Here's the easy to follow recipe and handy dandy printable below.

Peppermint Mocha Chocolate Chip Cookies

We love Peppermint Mocha Chocolate Chip Cookies during Christmas. I'm a mint and chocolate aholic when the temperature drops so these definitely hit the spot.

Peppermint Mocha Chocolate Chip Cookies are soft, and chewy with a crispy edge. They are perfect for dipping in hot chocolate or milk, while snuggled up next to the fireplace. Plus Santa's sure to love them! 

Shall we make the recipe?

Chipotle Chicken Sweet Potato Pumpkin Ale Chili

This months Yahoo Shine Supper Club Challenge is One Pot Meals and I thought what better way to celebrate then with my favorite Chipotle Chicken Sweet Potato Pumpkin Ale Chili! Whoo that was a mouthful! 

It's football season in case you don't have football fever going around your house like it's going around mine! It really is just the boys in the house it seems to spread to but I always enjoy the food. The Hubby let me know you all love recipes for a good tailgating party. He must be a mind reader I guess. He is pretty incredible! So I decided to take his recommendation.

Just in case you don't have football fever don't fret. If I were you I would just make any excuse to make this. Sooner rather then later because it is D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S! I mean what a perfect fall comfort food dish! Does life get any better then chipotle pepper's, chicken, black beans, sweet potatoes, topped off with a pumpkin ale? I think not!

The hubby had eaten half a bowl before we even sat down to eat and the kids cleaned their plates.
