Caprese Chicken, Fresh Green Beans, and Fresh Bruschetta

Are you looking for a healthy and delicious supper option?

Check out this meal.

Just for laughs, my Kiddo gave me an ”A” for presentation tonight.

What you do not know is I really do not like cooking main meals. They are burdensome to me and very boring. I love baking and place more emphasis on presentation with that, but I do not care what my main meals look like. I am just happy to have it all made for another night.

I used two different recipes tonight and will include their links to their recipes then click on the links for the full recipe.

Caprese Chicken


I used a wheat French baguette for my bread to put the delicious bruschetta on. A side note, I added a little shredded Italian cheese to mine as my family loves this added feature to my bruschetta.

Fresh Green Beans

I also served my meal with fresh steamed green beans and sprinkled with a little garlic salt and dried parsley.

Enjoy your supper!

Potato Soup For The Soul

D3300B1F-C512-475D-8C90-510C9063FC55Are you looking for a supper idea?

Are you in need of some comfort food on a cold winters night?

Try this wonderful soup. It is a recipe I received from my sweet German friend when we lived in Germany for three years.

Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture when I made it yesterday, but the next time I do make it, I will be sure to edit this recipe and add it then.

Potato Soup

This recipe makes enough for about 2 people


3 c water

5 small potatoes (peeled and diced)

2 medium size carrots (peeled and diced)

1/2 tsp salt (or enough for your taste)

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp parsley

3 beef frank hot dogs, cut into small pieces (any meat will work, especially ham, but I like it the way Heike made it with hotdogs)

1/2 cup all purpose flour (enough to thicken water into a gravy)


In a medium sauce pan boil your potatoes, carrots, and spices all together. When they are soft, add diced hotdogs (or meat of your choice). Once the hotdogs are cooked, thicken water into a gravy base with your all purpose flour.

When this is prepared as a meal, serve with grilled Panini sandwiches, chips, or salad.

Lastly, enjoy your comfort soup! It promises to not only warm your body, but it will warm your heart and soul as well.
