Tortellini Soup

Have you not been to Our Best Bites? You know you really should. They have great meals many of which are pretty healthy. This is one of them. This Tortellini Soup I made the other night. It was GREAT. The shredded zucchini makes it seem really hearty. If you are not doing flour you can substitute diced potato for the Tortellini it makes a nice hearty Italian soup. The next day Lee and Keaton fought over the leftovers for lunch. We are having missionaries from our church over for dinner this week. We are serving this!

Balsamic Chicken w/ Tomato & Mozarella Topping

I know it has been awhile. I became pregnant (yea!), moved to a new state (not so yea), and had a great Christmas. I am cooking new stuff again and thought I would share. This recipe I found on the Family Favorite Blog I LOVE. I love the Balsamic Chicken at Macaroni Grill but the last time I got it there it was not the same. This has a sugar free marinade and topping, and it fresh and lovely. I cannot wait until summer when I can make this again with garden tomatoes and fresh basil. Instead for today I used regular store tomatoes and a little Italian seasoning instead of the basil. I couldn't stop eating the topping especially. SOOO yummy! The chicken was wonderful alone too.

P.S. The carrots were just steamed then tossed with a little sauteed garlic and about a Tbsp of honey (my Dad's recipe).
