My Thoughts

My guilty addiction…

Ok…I have several, but the one I’m indulging in right now is…reality tv.

I LOVE it!!!

I only watch a few though….

Amazing Race!!! (so sad that Jet and Cord McCoy didn’t win šŸ˜¦ )

and I watched Dancing with the Stars…but only till KateĀ GosselinĀ was kicked off (wasn’tĀ her dancingĀ Ā a train wreck?!?)

and my ultimate favorite……


I’m so serious about this show that I refuse to answer the phone during it, no one is allowed to talk during the show, and heaven forbid ANYONE who watches it early and then attempts to tell me what happens (ARGH!).

My husband thinks this is hilarious and repeatedly tries to tease me during…in fact…he just called me from the tractor (out seeding!) just to tell me he loves me.

I answered the phone…

…but only because it was a commercial break! šŸ™‚


Claire Soup

What is Claire Soup you ask?!?

Only the bestest, easiest, fastest soup in the west! (Yes…I think I’m funny!) It is a soup that my husband named after my sister after he tried it for the first time.

It’s his thing…if it’s fantastic and he really,really,really wants you to make it again, it gets named after you! I have a chili….(from The Pioneer Woman cookbook…but don’t tell him that, he thinks I’m amazing!!!)

Anyways…my sister got this recipe from Rachael Ray…and it’s the best!

1 can of beef or chicken broth

1 cup water

1 packageĀ of tortellini

1 cup of grated cheese

Boil the broth/water, addĀ as muchĀ tortellini as you want, when noodles are ready, put into bowls and cover in cheese. SO GOOD!!!!!!
