Romans 15:13  May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Making this soup is difficult to give exact measurements since I made it from leftovers.

2-3 cups of cooked turkey cut into bite size pieces

2 cups of leftover turkey gravy

1/2 cup of orzo

2 cups of turkey or chicken broth

1-2 15 oz. cans of mixed vegetables – do not drai

Chicken or turkey broth

Cook the orzo in the broth until tender.  Mix the other ingredients (except the additional broth) together.  Add the cooked orzo.  Add enough broth to the desired thickness that you like.  Salt and pepper to taste.  This soup freezes very well and is a great way to use up leftover turkey or chicken. 12711252_10207345755736120_8654089009927521246_o

Isaiah 32:18  My people will live in peaceful dwelling places, in secure homes, in undistributed places of rest.

This is what I made for my hubby this Valentine’s day.   Peanut butter is one of his favorites.  There are plenty of peanut butter pie recipes with the cream cheese and cool whip, but I wanted a pie that had a pudding filling.  This one is easy to cook and is really good.  Feel free to add more peanut butter if desired.

One 10 inch pie shell or two graham cracker crust pie shells (regular or chocolate)

3/4 cups sugar

1/3 cup corn starch

pinch of salt

4 cups milk

4 egg yolks

3/4 cups peanut butter

3 T. butter at room temperature

1 t. vanilla

Blind bake the pie shell if using a pastry style crust.  If you are using the graham cracker style crust there is no need to bake it first.

Combine the sugar, cornstarch and salt.  Mix together well with a whisk.  Combine the milk and the egg yolks and whisk together until bell blended.  Add the liquid mixture to the sugar mixture in a saucepan.  Cook over medium heat stirring constantly.  After mixture boils (this will be a low boil), let it boil for one minute.  Remove from the heat and add the peanut butter, butter and vanilla.  Allow to cool slightly and then pour into pie shell(s).  Refrigerate for about an hour to allow the pudding to completely set.

Serve with ice cream, whipped cream, a drizzle of chocolate or caramel sauce or all of these.

12195865_10206677301225175_8456024344166014272_nProverbs 13: 20  He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.

One of my son-in-love’s favorites and so easy.  Next time you have chicken for dinner poach an additional chicken breast.  Season the water with season salt and pepper.

1 cooked chicken breast (can use rotisserie chicken) – chopped or shredded into small pieces

1 16 oz. can of chicken or vegetable broth

2 16 oz. cans of cannellini beans (can use navy or great northern beans)

16 oz. can of crushed or diced tomatoes – optional

Add these ingredients into a slow cooker.  Do not drain the beans.

Add seasonings to your taste.  I suggest:

1 T. chili powder

1 t. cumin

1 t. celery flakes

2 T. dried chopped onions

1 t. parsley flakes

1/2 t. cayenne

1/2 t. garlic powder

1/2 t. pepper

1 t. salt – optional if on a low sodium diet

Heat together and taste broth for flavor.  Add more of any of the above to taste.

Add additional chicken or vegetable broth if you want a thinner soup.

This soup freezes well.  You can add cilantro and/or sour cream when you serve the soup.
