Tasty Soup & Wontons

I felt good enough to make up a yummy batch of soup this afternoon, I had a some spinach that needed using up.

Tortellini Soup

8c. chicken broth
1pkg frozen cheese tortellinis
1/2c. chopped spinach
2T. minced basil
1/4c. each- diced celery & carrots

Bring the broth to a boil, add all remaining ingred. Simmer for about 30 min, until carrots and celery are cooked.

Now these little wonton cigars were fun and easy I am going to be working on different fillings for them, this time I made them with plain cream cheese and dipped them in sweet & sour sauce. I threw some in the freezer to see how well they hold up & rebake later. I hope this all made sense cause I'm still loopy :)

Looks good! Be careful mixing pain meds and cooking, could be dangerous! On the other hand, you may come up with a fantastic recipe you would never have thought of without them! Just don't forget to rest and take care of yourself, okay?

Yes, I concur. Pain meds and cooking...could lead to interesting results. Just make sure you are under adult supervision while you're still "loopy"! Get better quick!

Sounds like a delicious soup. I love tortellini in soup, makes it like a meal. Hope you are feeling better.

Glad to see you are feeling well enough to be up and cooking. I have always heard the worst part of the gall bladder surgery is the following day or so of shoulder pain from the air they pump you full of traveling upward. Hope the drugs helped with that, if they didn't don't tell me because if I do need the surgery that's the part that is scaring the heck out of me.
