Chicken Tortellini Soup

So it's been getting colder out it's about time!!!
I love winter and watching the kids sled "our way"
{My Husband is pulling them with his Quad that's why they are wearing helmets!!}
So that's when I like to make soup

Chicken Tortellini Soup

I am cooking
and using ONLY what's in my stockpile
And I had everything...
Frozen Tortellini
1lb. cooked chicken
1 can Tomatoes w/basil and oregano
2 cans chicken broth
1/4 pack of frozen spinach
1 can tomato paste{not pictured sorry}
1/2 onion chopped
salt and pepper to taste
I put in all in a pot and heat on Low
for about an hour
top w/parm cheese
and serve w/ warm bread

Homemade Christmas

So this year I was just giving Money{Boring}
