As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

Soup On Tuesday: Week 8

Actually, soup was served on Monday this week, to make accomodations for our schedule. I tried another brand-new-to-me recipe. If you're looking for something to make in a hurry, this is it. 

This week's soup...

2 cups water
1 28-oz. can diced tomatoes
2 cups chicken broth
1 tablespoon dried basil
1 tablespoon dried oregano
salt and pepper to taste
2 bags frozen broccoli, cauliflower and carrots
1 20-oz. package refrigerated tortelli
grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
  1. In a large pot, combine water, broth, tomatoes, basil, oregano, salt, and pepper.  Bring to a boil.  
  2. Stir in frozen vegetables and tortellini.  Return to boiling; reduce heat and simmer for 6 to 7 minutes, or until tortellini noodles are cooked. 
  3. If desired, sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese.

Could it be any easier to put a nice hot soup on the table?  Hardly.  And it tasted pretty good too!
