Crazy skies today.Anthony, Katie, and I met up for our usual weekday run and all agreed that if we wouldn’t have scheduled this jog together, we probably all would have bailed. It was so cold and windy — definitely needed some running buddies to help me push through the miles! (BTW, I didn’t edit the photo above or below; that’s just how weirdly colored the sky was this morning.)We did unintentional negative splits because we just wanted the run to be over and done with :). It was sort of one of those runs where everyone goes silent the last mile because all we can think about is going home and taking a hot shower.Brrr. How about we warm up with some soup?!When I stopped by Brita’s blog the other day, I saw her recipe for chicken tortilla soup and thought it looked so delicious! So I made it. And it was. Thanks, Brita!I pretty much stuck to the recipe, but only had one can of cannellini beans on hand. I subbed in a can of (unpureed) chickpeas instead! Which is why my batch came out a little more soupy, less creamy. Aaaaaand, I forgot the corn because I just simply forgot. Poor me.
Still good though!Mexican food is my favorite because it’s all about the toppings. Mine included: Greek yogurt, avocado, cilantro, cheddar, and chopped radishes. Plus a few Food Should Taste Good chips and a squeeze of lime. I just Googled Food Should Taste Good and saw that you can get a 12-pack on Amazon for only $2.13 a bag. I definitely need to have at least 12 bags on hand at any given point. And also, speaking of Amazon, did you see this 20 Secret Tips for Shopping at Amazon article? I actually learned a few things.
Sorry, back to the soup. I also modified the recipe to make it crock pot-friendly. Set it and forget it Easy to pack for office lunches, too!And since Brita often includes beautiful flowers in her recipe posts, I thought I should as well. Have a good day!
