Chicken Veggie Soup Recipe

After a week of vacation eating in Hayward, I needed a reset. My go to is this Chicken Veggie Soup that has a good variety of vegetables, protein, and is super delicious! 

The only problem is that I search all over for my recipe every time I go to make the soup and although I've mentioned it several times on this blog, I'm not sure it has ever been posted.

So here it is!

Chicken Veggie Soup

1Tbsp olive oil
4 carrots, sliced
4 stalks celery, sliced
2 C cabbage, chopped
1 tsp minced garlic
1 pound boneless chicken thighs
1 14.5oz can diced tomatoes
2 32oz boxes reduced sodium chicken broth (no gluten, no sugar/soy to make it Whole30)
3 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2-1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp oregano
2 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped

In a large stock pot, saute the carrots, celery, and cabbage in olive oil over medium heat until tender, 8-10 minutes, stir occasionally.

Add minced garlic and stir in.

Position chicken thighs along the bottom of the pan to brown. Cook a few minutes per side.

Add diced tomatoes, chicken broth, and seasonings (except fresh parsley).

Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.

Remove chicken thighs from the soup, chop, and return to stock pot.

Simmer another 30 minutes. Then stir in fresh parsley.

Hope you enjoy!

Happy New Year!

So I had a whirlwind December and it's turning into a whirlwind January. I was in performances for A Charlie Brown Christmas at La Crosse Community Theatre for most of December and I closed out the show with a MAJOR sickness. I think I had a virus on top of the flu.

Uffdah. I would not recommend it. And I would recommend going to the doctor if you are sick for over three weeks. I'm FINALLY getting better and trying to shake off the last of the crud. So I missed out on most of the holidays while I hibernated on my couch and watched movies.

But all of a sudden it was January and I was globe trotting off to Chicago for work, working LONG hours back at home, and my sister (This Mom Loves) and I launched Strong Arts & Crafts. I'm in that stage of growth that feels overwhelming and completely crazy, but there are so many good things going on now.

One of my items for sale at Strong Arts & Crafts on Etsy.
Check out our new Strong Arts & Crafts facebook page or the Etsy site. I'm hoping to work in a fresh look to the blog for the new year soon, so stay tuned for a fabulous 2015!

Early on in the rehearsal process we were advised to study children in our attempt to portray 8 year olds in A Charlie Brown Christmas. Not being around kids very often, I decided instead to load up my Netflix queue with Charlie Brown videos. 

This way I could study how cartoon eight year olds interacted. I'm not sure I've learned anything, but tonight was entertaining anyhow. 

I watched You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown (with wine).  It features a couple songs we'll be performing so that was fun to watch. And now I think we all need baseball bats for Team, but I digress. 

Tonight I enjoyed Snoopy's song Supper Time the most. It reminded me so much of my little Peanut. He always enjoyed a good supper time. I imagine if Peanut could have sung, he would have serenaded me with Supper Time every evening. 

I'm counting on that joyful memory to get me through. We open in just over a week and I fear it may get worse before it gets better. Hang onto your hats, folks!
