Spinach Tortellini soup

Tortellini Soup


  • 2- 14.5 oz cans of chicken broth
  • 2- 14.5 oz cans of stewed or diced tomatoes ( I use fire roasted)
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 pkg of knorr vegetable mix
  • 10 oz pkg of frozen chopped spinach
  • 9 oz pkg of fresh tortellini or 4 servings of dried tortellini
  • 1 cup italian sausage- browned
  • Fresh grated parmesan cheese
  • 4 cups of water


In a large soup pot, combine broth, tomatoes, water, garlic, and vegetable mix (or if freezing, add these ingredients to a gallon freezer bag and freeze). Bring to a boil. Add tortellini and cook according to package instructions. When tortellini is almost done, add spinach and sausage. Do not add it before to avoid it becoming more "stew" like. Add salt and pepper to your desired taste. Garnish with Parmesan and serve with salad and bread.

Also makes a great crockpot meal. Let soup mixture cook on low and then add tortellini, spinach and sausage according to instructions above.

From the Mixed up Files of Mrs. Basil E Frankweiler Book Celebration

Whew! That blog title is a mouth full! Funny story, when I tried to introduce this book to our book club, I couldn't spit the title out. A fellow mom came to my rescue and introduced the book. I don't know why it was so tricky, but I just couldn't say it!

Anyway...We took a few months off from book club because of the holidays and came back together in February to celebrate the reading of From the Mixed up Files of Mrs. Basil E Frankweiler by E.L. Konigsburg. If you are not familiar with this book, the Metropolitan Museum of Art serves as the background for a mystery surrounding a work thought to possibly be Michelangelo's. A brother and sister spend the book looking for clues while living at the museum. It was a fun read.

As an appropriate celebration, we decided to host our book club at the local Art Museum. They have a great wing with classrooms that we were able to meet in and then we went for a short guided walk through part of the gallery!

Our craft this time was …

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe Book Celebration!

Last week I shared about our September book club party for Alice in Wonderland. This week I'm going to show you our November book party for The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe! I think this one was even more fun than the last!

Since it was a wee bit colder around here in November, we opted to have this book club at our local library. They have a great story hour room that you can reserve for community events, and it works perfectly for our group. The younger siblings can wander back and forth between our event and the children's area of the library! Brilliant!

As the children arrived, they got to go through a wardrobe! maybe it wasn't a wardrobe so much as a clothes rack with long coats hanging on it, but that didn't stop the kids from going through it over and over and over!

When they stepped through they were greeted by this loveliness! I had several trees situated throughout the room to create the feeling of Narnia! The white fabric at the base was supposed…

Poetry tea time with boys

In our home we can easily fill our days with busyness. With two little boys, life IS busyness. But the chaos that is the modern life can easily push that busyness into chaos. We have sports and activities on top of a educational plan that challenges each of the boys. It's easy to get lost in the challenge and tally up your successes. It's harder to slow down and find beauty and just savor a moment. In my heart I desperately want the boys to remember more than just their multiplication tables from our journey together. I want them to have wonderful memories of our time. So, I'm very diligent about making sure we have those opportunities. We take hikes, we ride bikes, we do science experiments, we build legos. Have you notieced a theme? We DO. In case you missed it earlier, boys are BUSY! (Disclaimer: I'm sure girls are too. I just have no frame of reference. Sorry)

So, I have my hands full with these two little boys and then I read these lovely, I mean, Lovely, did you …
