Spinach Tomato Soup

I am not sure where I originally saw this recipe, but after trying it, I knew it was a keeper. The problem is I do not have the exact recipe! I have searched the internet and have found different versions (some with pasta added), but I loved the original so much I knew I had to try to duplicate it. This is how I make it to my liking, you can adjust the herbs and seasonings to your taste as well.

It is so quick and delicious...not to mention healthy!

1 can great northern beans
1 can diced tomatoes
16 oz chicken broth
3 or 4 oz of frozen spinach
chicken breast, cooked and shredded (optional: I have eaten it both ways and loved them both!)
small onion, diced
1/2 tsp basil
1/4 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste

Combine in sauce pan, simmer for 10 - 15 minutes.

Quick and delicious!

Out of the Mouth of Babes

I just have to write this little memory down here on the blog so I won't forget the cute little things that my 5 year old says!

While reading from my devotional book, M  informed me that I needed to stop reading from my "emotional" book and start reading the Bible because it was much better. 

Then, I was reading a passage of Scripture to her and one of the verses said something about drinking wine and she said, "they should not be drinking wine because water is the only thing that is healthy for you!"
