Dinner, Dinner, what's for Dinner.......

I have been slacking in the dinner making department lately, in fact I think they might have fired me if they had that option. I haven't had a lot of desire or enthusiasm to make much of anything. But today, after a trip to the grocery store, I decided to make a soup that I have had on my mind for awhile.

Chicken & Orzo Soup

Here is our line-up of suspects-
Here I have my kitchen slaves pulling the stems off of the spinach, muhahahaha!

(See how scared the little one is, she knows I mean business)
And while they did that I took a break and ate some of these, the bottle was already almost empty when I started, I swear.
Now surprisingly the Kiddo's all gave this a thumbs up, I did suspect I might have a bit of a fight what with the spinach floating in their soup, but they all ate it right up. I must say bribing them with fortune cookies probably helped ;)

My only problem with this soup was that there were no leftovers for my lunch tomorrow :(

Chicken & Orzo Soup

8c. chicken broth
1c. orzo, uncooked
1/4c. minced fresh parsley
1c. cooked diced chicken
1c. chopped spinach

Bring your chicken broth to a boil, add in the remaining ingred. and simmer for 15 min.
Enjoy, this served my Family of 6 perfectly.
