I personally LOVE soup.  It doesn’t have to be cold out for me to want it, but when it is? I am ALL UP ON IT.  I grew up loving certain soups, and lentil is one of my absolute tops!  I have literally, never made it myself though!  So, I gave it a go.  I wasn’t even sure I was going to end up sharing this one, because it obviously could have come out awful! But alas, it did not! This lentil soup was thick, chock full of veggies, and so good!  I loved it!  The recipe is totally a keeper! So, I hope you LOVE this lentil soup, too!

Yeah, I am THERE.  Lucky for me, so is my boyfriend, so it works out beautifully ;).  Today we’re making this Pasta Primavera that you can essentially change up according to your liking.  I will share my version, but whatever vegetables you want to add, you can add to the recipe and create your own version!

Serving Up: Adobo Chicken w/Salsa Verde

servingup

Adobo Chicken with Salsa Verde is on the menu today, and it was DELICIOUS!  I am a through and through lover of all things Spanish, Mexican, and Peruvian so this dish was just wonderful.  It was also a lot of tinkering to get the salsa verde exactly how I wanted it! [Not too spicy, not bland]  But I think it came out exactly how I had envisioned!

Someone, [that’s me!] forgot to take an ingredients picture, but don’t worry, as always you can find everything you need in the recipe card at the end of the post! Also, in case you didn’t know you can SAVE and PRINT the recipes from that recipe card!
