Cooking: Spinach Tomato Orzo Soup

Spinach Tomato Orzo Soup by Angie McGowan at the Family Kitchen

This recipe seems so simple upon first glance, but it’s a little bit crazy.  Though I appreciate the intent may have been to use whole boxes, bags & cans of ingredients so you don’t have anything left to shove back into your pantry (I love that!) BUT you will get more soup than you know what to do with so unless you are feeding a family of 10 it might get wasted at the end.  It was delicious the first time, hot off the stove and I love a recipe not afraid of adding spinach.  But leftovers aren’t soup.  They are soggy pasta at best.  (The orzo absorbs all of the liquid).  Fine, maybe, for a lunch at the office, maybe once, but that’s it.  I would need to find a way to make about 1/3 of this recipe if I were to make it again.  If you are feeding a crowd on a cold winter day, then go check out the recipe over at The Family Kitchen.

These are delicious!  I find them at Whole Foods and I get one of every flavor.  Perfect to pair with a salad for lunch.  Thank you to the Happy Herbivore for the introduction.

The kids needed a big meal to power through exam week. They studied before the food arrived, while we ate and after we got back home. They better bring home some good grades!  Evren casually asked, “Hey mom, after this, how about we go get some dessert?”  Ha!  Uh, no.

I thought the kids would have a little fun designing their own pizzas for dinner. The Papa Murphy’s Mini Murph comes with sauce, pepperoni and cheese. I also made sure they had chopped onions, assorted peppers and sliced black olives to add for at least a little veggies. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a photo of their masterpieces (shameful).

Ayla has been begging me to take them to family night at Baskin-Robbins for months but she usually has sports on Tuesday (or we just forget). Even though it was a little chilly outside they didn’t mind going out for ice cream!
