The plague, furniture, soup, etc.



The Plague has descended. Mac is one sick kid. We would appreciate your prayers as he's feeling pretty rotten. Currently the only thing he can keep down is Arizona sweet iced tea. Weird.
The Mr. is on day 5 of 6 and decided to take Thursday off. He's happy to be off of that weird shift but his body is totally confused. He's going to spend Thursday having the carpets cleaned. That sounds fun, huh? Then it's back on the trail looking for new family room furniture.
And I made a delicious pot of soup, the recipe is below.

4 boneless chicken breasts
Italian salad dressing
6 carrots
4 celeries
Large chicken broth
Salsa
6 potatoes
Taco seasoning
Colby cheese, shredded.

Marinate the chicken in Italian salad dressing overnight.
Place whole breasts into soup pot, add broth. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 45 minutes-1 hour. After the chicken is cooked through, remove to plate and shred.
Chop potatoes, carrots & celery, add to pot and top with water if necessary. Bring to boil & reduce to simmer until soft.
Dump in salsa.
Add taco seasoning and water to top off pot if needed. Remove from heat. Stir in one package of shredded colby cheese.

Sour cream, guacamole, tortilla chips would be great garnishes.

This was actually a result of not grocery shopping and using leftovers to make lunch! The salsa was about half a jar, adjust according to your taste.

And that is all I have to say for now!

We're praying for Mac, and totally understand the misery he's going though.
Soup sounds good. Those "desperation" soups usually are the best.
love you's
