We are having Clam Chowder this evening however, I have already posted that recipe so I decided I would post this yummy soup recipe.
This is a hearty delicious yet quick and easy meal. I am having problems getting the picture of it uploaded but I will keep trying.
1 Cup chopped broccoli
1/2 Cup chopped carrots
1/2 Cup chopped onion
1/2 Cup diced red bell pepper
1 garlic clove, pressed
1 can (14 1/2 oz.) chicken broth
2 Cups diced cooked chicken ( I just bake up a couple of chicken breasts )
1 TBS. snipped basil
1 jar ( 16 oz.) Alfredo sauce
Grated fresh Parmesan cheese
1. Chop broccoli, carrots and onion. Dice bell pepper. Place broccoli, carrots, onion, bell pepper and garlic in a medium Saucepan. Add broth: bring to a boil. cover, reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes or until vegetables are crisp - tender.
2. Meanwhile, dice chicken. Snip basil and set aside. Add chicken and Alfredo sauce to brother, simmer 5 minutes or until heated through. Remove from heat, stir basil into soup.
3 When serving sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, if desired.
Yield: 4 servings I always double this recipe.
My trusty helpers P.J. and Henry will be helping me with Sugar Cookies later. I will post pictures. I have already posted the recipe. We are going to actually go and speak to our neighbors while bearing gifts. ( cookies) This is something our neighborhood never does. We all are helpful to each other when a dog gets out or a kid needs help etc. but, when such occurrences arise we don't know each others names.
Our neighbors to the south are known to us as Rock Boy and Rock Girl. He used to sell us rocks when we first moved in. I finally told him to shove off. He preceded to try to sell me old News Papers.
After that he and his sister broke into my dad's truck to retrieve some change sitting on the seat.
Why are we giving them cookies ? Well they are in prison now and their parents are sad. No they have quit there thieving ways , so we are trying to show good will blah blah blah.
Our neighbor to the north is a single guy, who never gets homemade cookies. I don't think he cares but we are giving him some anyway.
We are even going to venture around the corner. Wish us luck and may God be with us.
