Neener neener neener

So remember how I told you all to not over-do it this year with the resolutions?  Do you remember that?

Well I would to just let you all know that I accomplished all of my resolutions as of Sunday.

Sunday, January 31.

That’s right my friends.  I started shopping at Whole Foods (I’ve been twice) and I learned to make a soup.

I didn’t just learn to make a soup either, I learned to make a soup so well that I was able to tell someone else how to make it.

But in all fairness, it only has 5 ingredients.

On last Friday’s show, my favorite lady, Rachael Ray, made this 5 ingredient tortellini soup.  And I have to tell you, it is AMAZING.


Okay, this soup…people…it is SO easy to make.  You buy a can of chicken broth.  You buy some tortellini.  You buy some spinach.  You buy a lemon and some Parmesan cheese.  Boil the broth.  Cook the tortellini.  When the tortellini is almost done, put the spinach in.  By the time the pasta is done, the spinach will have cooked down enough.  Then you ladle it, put a little lemon zest on top and some Parmesan and DONE!


And seriously…so so delicious.

And do you want to know what makes it even more delicious?  Knowing that learning how to make this soup means that I knocked out both of my New Year’s resolutions by January.

Neener neener.

    That soup? Looks very yummy. I’m going to have to try it with vegetable bullion. Mmm. Spinach and parmesan. Mmm.

    Way to go on your resolutions! I made ONE, and I have yet to start on it.
