Comfort Food!


Everyone loves yummy comfort food, right?
I know my hand is raised!
I  have to say my favorite day is Sunday - for many reasons - but one big one {since I am on the subject of comfort food} is because I never have to cook and instead I eat the best meal of the week prepared by my amazing mother-in-law Sue! She has her own food/recipe blog Here! But, the woman can cook and I am always impressed because she can be traveling anywhere in the world and if I have a question about a certain recipe I can call her and she can tell me what I need and how to prepare it! She's got mad cooking skills!

So...a  couple of Sundays ago she prepared this yummy white Bean and Chicken soup - my kids went crazy and I knew it was going to be a staple in our meals! So... do you want the recipe..huh? huh?
Well, you have to vote HERE and than I will give it to you! Just kidding....but seriously have you voted today? Only four days left-  hallelujah, right? 

Well, since almost everyone I know has been voting, let me dole out some deliciousness to you in return,

Easy White Bean and Chicken Soup
2 Tbsp. Olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
3 chicken breasts, cooked and chopped
1 (9 oz) package frozen white corn
2 (15) oz cans white kidney beans, undrained
1 (7 oz) can diced green chilies
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp oregano
3 cups chicken broth
3tbsp lime juice

cheese, sour cream, avacados, tortilla strips!

In a large pot saute onion and garlic in olive oil. In a crockpot, add chopped chicken {I boiled it the night before and stuck in the fridge} corn, beans, green chillies, spices, broth and lime juice. Stir until well blended. I left the crockpot on all day on low heat and it turned out perfectly when we at it later on that night!

Ohhh.... you are so WELCOME!!!!

Heather, you really better win this contest!!! and I really need to try this recipe.

That is so funny about Parker being chased. Jena came home the other day really concerned because one of her best friends Drew is being chased by girls who want him out of the school :) ... I asked her if she thought that maybe the girls liked him and she looked at mr like I was crazy.
