Fabulous Finds of the day!

More OHOW giveaway goodies:



I'm so behind on my blogging but I wanted to share with you these fabulous goodies that I won a few weeks ago from Louise at Beachys Cape Cod Cupboard during the OWOH giveaway! I really treasure the pink/green bracelet because it is one of my favorite color combinations! I have worn the bracelet several times with my Sew La Mode t-shirt from Wriskey.com and I have received numerous compliments. Everything from Louise is always top notch and she always has unique and fun ideas at her Etsy boutique: Cape Cod Cupboard!

My Mom is a fabulous cook and she occasionally makes up her own recipes. One day, we were lunching at a local tea room and we had Chicken Taco Soup with our sandwiches. We both loved it and my Mom said that she could probably come up with a similar recipe and after experimenting a little bit, she did! It's a really easy recipe and tasty, too! I like to make my soup in the crock pot so it simmers for several hours but it's easily made on the cook top, too. Enjoy!

I usually cook chicken beforehand and freeze it for future use...saves time!



I love those crock pot bags...easy clean up!

Carol Wikberg's Chicken Taco Soup Recipe

1-2 undrained cans pinto or kidney beans (I use 1 can kidney beans)
1 small or large undrained can corn (I use 1 large can)
1- 14.5 oz. can chicken broth
1 package taco seasoning
1- 28 oz. can crushed or diced tomatoes
1-2 cups water (to taste)
4 shredded chicken breasts
2-3 tablespoons sugar (to taste)
tortilla chips and shredded cheese (cheddar or Monterrey jack) for garnishing
(make sure you add the undrained/whole cans where noted)

Put all ingredients in a large pot and bring to boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes. Garnish with chips and cheese before serving. Serves 4-5.

Good without the cheese, too! Better the second day :-)



My new merchandise will be listed soon in the Pastelle Paperie at Shabbyfufu! I've been working hard over the last few weeks and I'm very pleased with my new merchandise: wedding, Mother's Day, birthday and more.




Have a fabulous day!
