Cheesy Broccoli Chicken Noodle Soup

Hey! I thought I would share the recipe from our lunch today. It has a LONG name but it is yummy!
                Cheesy Broccoli Chicken Noodle Soup
                 2 chicken breast ( I use bone in)
                 1 bag frozen broccoli
                 Velveeta  or sliced cheese
                 1 bag of egg noodles
Boil your chicken in a pot big enough for the soup. Don't add too much water since you want to be able to add a little milk at the end. After chicken is through cooking remove from pot and dice, cube or shred. Add egg noodles and frozen broccoli to the pot. By the time the noodles are through the broccoli will be too :). You need to keep an eye on it since you there is not a whole lot of extra liquid in the pot. When the noodles and broccoli are done add in your chicken and cheese. I just eyeball the cheese. Today I used 6 pieces of sliced cheese and it was a plenty. At the very end add a little milk to make it soupy. You probably don't HAVE to add the milk but it does add a creamy texture. I wish I could have added a picture but my camera is on the blink :(.  This was the first soup I thought of with this cooler weather today. I like soup anytime of year but there is something special about having it when the temperature starts to fall :)  Have a great day!

It's Tuesday!

  Hey! I  really like Tuesdays. The week is rolling along, school is at a steady pace and most of the time the house shows the fruit of a good Monday of getting things back in shape from the weekend. Well, not today! There is lots of cleaning and laundry and schooling to do today. It's not too bad though as we have gotten off to a pretty good day with school and the house.
  My personal goal today is to get my kitchen table cleared again. The paint has dried in my kitchen cabinets so I can put everything back now. It was fun to eat and school in the family room for a little while but I am ready to be back in the kitchen. We are having beef enchiladas, spanish rice and refried beans for supper. Lord willing we will be eating our supper at the table!!
   I am hoping to get my camera working soon so that I can post a few pictures of our family and our days. I hope you are having a good week! Take care!

Happy Labor Day!

   Hey! We had a great weekend!I was able to go on church visitation for the second month in a row!! I am so thankful for a sweet friend and my sweet sister staying with the children so that I could go. I also had a sweet friend go on a visit to a lady who had visited our church! I am surrounded by sweet people!! :) I came home and made some chicken and rice, cream corn and homemade biscuits. Guess what??? the biscuits were good!! Yay!  My little niece stayed over night with us. She is an only child ( for another 6 wks) and she enjoys all the playmates she has when she comes over. While our little one was taking a nap I snuck off to Walmart, Lowes and Big Lots to look for a new curtain for my kitchen. It was nice to have a little while to clear my head and look around. I did all of this in about 1hr. For supper we had an easy pancake meal, gave the little ones a bath, had devotions and laid out everyones clothes for Sunday!! Sunday we had chocolate chip muffins and blueberry muffins for breakfast. We had a Wonderful day of services! The messages were a   blessing and the Spirit of the Lord could be felt in the singing and testimonies! God is soo good!!
   Today we have been invited to my sisters house for lunch! Yay! I am taking baked beans,chili and buns since I was planning on cooking that for us already -). It will be fun to be able to go visit with her for a little while! We will have cajun red beans and rice with smoked sausage for supper. I recently bought $100 lbs of red beans for $40! A friend also bought 100 lbs of black beans for $40! We split the beans 50/50 so now we both have 50 lbs of each bean!! We are planning on going to a revival meeting tonight so we will need to have supper pretty early. Tomorrow we will start back on the school schedule again bright and early!!
  Please pray for a dear friends mom who will start radiation and chemo treatments this week.
Take care! Have a blessed week!
