Soup Project Week 11

11 weeks of soup! That's crazy! I'm working my way down this list. For the past few weeks I've been trying to do 3 soups a week. This week we only got to two.

First up was Creamy Coconut Green Chili Chicken Soup. This soup comes to us from the blog, Delicious Obsessions. This slightly spicy, rich and tasty soup was perfect for breakfast this week.
Green Chili Soup packed up and ready to go.
Given that we had a range of weather, it was nice on cold mornings, foggy mornings and rainy mornings. It wasn't an amazing soup or one that got awesome reviews from my companion, but it was tasty. I think actually it might have been better without the coconut milk, that's probably worth a try. One of the things I've learned during this #soupproject is that soups were you just dump stuff in a pot and let it simmer are great.This was one of those soups. There are definitely some soups from this list that will remain in a regular rotation, but I also am inspired to create my own dump and simmer soups. I hope that this project has inspired you as well.

The second soup I was able to make this week was Thai Coconut Turkey Soup. See a theme this week? Actually there have been quite a few soups on this list featuring coconut milk. This one is from a blog called The Endless Meal. This soup was a real winner at our house. I love green curry, it's something I order almost every time we go out for thai food. I was again surprised that my companion also loved this soup. Not that he dislikes anything in it, but it's not his first choice when eating thai food (because it's not super spicy). I actually realized as he was eating it and raving about how good it was, that out of the 27 soups I've made so far, he's only really refused to eat one (Sweet Potato and Carrot). Since I make a turkey breast every week to each for lunches during the week, I had some left over turkey to shred and add to the recipe. The green curry, coconut milk and ginger make such a great flavor combination. The mushrooms, tomatoes and bell peppers give the soup a variety of textures.
Yummy Thai Soup
That's it for this week in soup, let's see what we are able to accomplish next week! As I said, I hope this project has been inspiring you just like it has me! If it has or if you've also tried any of these recipes, please let me know! #soupproject

"Paleo Burritos" AKA stuffed collard greens

I recently discovered another use for collard leaves, a replacement for our old friend known as tortillas or wraps. After removing the stems and taking a quick 3 to 5 minute bath in boiling water they are ready to go. They are more durable than lettuce and fold over a little easier after being boiled. I have used them to make a variety of lunchmeat and grilled chicken wraps recently and then I got to thinking, couldn't I make a burrito out of them? Once I assembled them, it reminded me more of stuffed cabbage than burritos, call it whatever you want, they were still yummy. So, I'll share the recipe with you.

This recipe should be considered a guide and you can change and swap any way you wish.

Approximately 4 collard leaves
1 lb ground turkey
1/2 yellow onion sliced thin
1 green bell pepper sliced thin
1 4 oz can green chiles
1 15 oz can of diced tomatoes
the following spices can be added to your taste (I don't measure)
chilli powder
cumin
garlic powder
salt
pepper
cayenne…

Paleo Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Nashville in a Nutshell

Hello folks!

Skip and her companion recently jetted off to the wonderful land of Nashville, TN for a quick trip with our friends, Mr. & Mrs. Z. Here are some highlights, tid bits and recommendations.

Places to stay: We shacked up at the Hutton Hotel on West End Ave, not far from Vanderbuilt University, but also pretty close to Downtown Nashville. The Hutton is a boutique hotel and is very chic. We found it classy, comfortable and clean-- all very important. They have Nespresso machines on each floor, so you can get your caffeine fix, but you have to leave your room. However, there is a small coffee maker in the room as well with a decent coffee and tea selection. The highlight for Skip's companion was that there were speakers in the bathroom that allowed you to hear what was playing on the tv. The shower was amazing. Skip is not a fan of rain shower heads, but this one was fantastic and you could set the temperature and turn the shower on and off from a panel directly outside o…
