Lasagna Soup Recipe


I am not sure about where you live but here in Northern California the days are much cooler and as the winter draws near I find myself making more soup recipes which are my favorite during the very cold winter days. So in honor of these chilly days I decided to share with you a delicious Lasagna Soup recipe that I made just the other night and it was a huge hit with my family. 

Lasagna Soup

Ingredients
3 tsp olive oil
1/2 lb ground turkey
1/2 onion chopped
1/2 green bell pepper chopped
1/2 tsp garlic, minced
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1/4 black pepper
32oz Chicken broth
2-8 oz tomato sauce cans
1-14.5 oz can petite diced tomatoes
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp crushed red peppers
2 cups of noodles- I recommend something small
1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped
3 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese 

Directions
Heat oil in a large sauce pan
Add the ground turkey, onion, bell pepper, garlic, Italian seasoning and pepper. 
Cook over medium heat stirring occasionally until the meat is browned
Add the broth, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, salt and red peppers and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer for about 20 minutes.
Add the noodles and cook uncovered until the noodles are tender, stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat, stir in the basil and cheeses and ENJOY!


Hope you have a chance to try out this delicious soup this winter.
Thanks for stopping by!

Thanksgiving Rewind- Kids Thanksgiving Art Projects


Happy Fall everyone!!! I know that was super overdue but in the spirit of Thanksgiving just around the corner I thought I would share a very popular post of mine from last year which are these fun Kids Thanksgiving Art Projects that my daughter and I did. Hope this gets you in the spirit of the upcoming holidays!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This year my daughter is at the age where art projects are a huge hit with her. So I decided to share with you all the projects we did for Thanksgiving this year and how you can do them as well for your children.



Pretty basic I used white card stock paper, acrylic paints and a paint brush. 


First up we did a tree painting using her hand and finger prints. 
I painted her hand and used her hand print as the branches and the start of the trunk.
I then painted the rest of the trunk of the tree with the brush. 


The next step was to use her thumb print and just go crazy with leaves. 
We used yellow, orange and red for the leaves. 


Then of course since it turned out really nice I framed it :)


Our next painting project was making turkeys out of her hands.
Very easy: use their hand print for the body, then use their finger to make feet, grass and the other accents on its body. 


Here is Hailey making a "bunch of leaves" as she said :)


My last project was a really fun project. 
I made a turkey using scrap paper literally by eyeballing it, so it isn't perfect. 
I then wanted to fill each feather with what she told me she was thankful for.
First I had to explain to her what Thankful even meant. 
But once she got it she was on a roll.. A pretty funny roll too.. The washer machine? Her crown? and Money? What an imagination she has! 



I hope you enjoy these projects as much as I did!
