My LIfe Squared { 12.06.13 - 12.12.13 }

Here is "my life squared", some of the moments I captured this week.

It has been SO cold here the last week that some chicken noodle soup sounded wonderful. My Mom made homemade chicken noodle soup when I was a kid and I loved it, although it took her most of the day. She made her own stock, made her own egg noodles and so on. Since I don't have time or desire to be in the kitchen all day I came up with this easy recipe. 

Quick & Easy Chicken Noodle Soup
1 Rotisserie Chicken
2 cans of Chicken Broth (or boxes) of 48oz each
1 stack of celery chopped
2 or 3 large carrots chopped
1 package of Buitoni Fettuccine
1 cup of White Instant Rice
Salt and Pepper to taste

Combine broth, celery & carrots in a large pot, over high heat bring to a boil. Cut rotisserie chicken (I only use the breast meat, personal choice) into chunks. Cut pasta in half (I dislike long noodles in my soup, too sloppy). When broth and veggies are bowling add the rice, noodles, and chicken. Cover and turn heat to low for 10 minutes then serve. 

My boys playing Risk, Corbin is winning and Tyler isn't too happy...LOL Can you tell I had fun playing with filters on this image??

My weekend sewing project. Made myself and Aly "Foxy" sweatshirts. 

Christmas shopping with my Tyler. BTW he didn't find a thing and is still on the hunt! Nothing like waiting until the last minute like his mama. 

Every week I meet Dawn (my bestie and business partner) at either Target or Starbucks. This week it was at Target (which has a Starbucks), discussing new ideas and products for D & P Celebrations. I LOVE our meetings!! 

Tyler's teacher entered one of his videos into a Film Festival contest. He wasn't chosen, but the producer said he loved the video and thought it was funny! Ty's style is dry humor, think Monty Python or Kids in the Hall.  Here is the link to his video "Karma".

Last but certainly not least. A little FREEBIE I created for the D & P Celebrations blog today. Retro Santa tags you can download, print, cut and adorn your holiday gifts with.
