Hi, you guys! HAPPY SUNDAY! GUESS what today IS?? Just guess! It’s MY Name Day! Happy Name Day to meeee, Happy Name Day to meeeeeee! Oh. you don’t know what that is? Lemme tell you!
Most followers of the Eastern Orthodox Church celebrate Name Days or Saints Feast Days. The Name Days are celebrated in commemoration of Saints and Martyrs of the Church. On those days, we remember the holy men and women by celebrating Them. Because I carry the name associated with St. Catherine of Alexandria (Sveta Katerina, in Macedonian), today, December 7th, I celebrate Her in accordance with the Julian Calendar. According to the Gregorian Calendar, St. Catherine of Alexandria is celebrated on November 25th.
Now, allow me to turn your attention to this Creamy Chicken Tortilla Soup! This soup was part of my post-Thanksgiving “detox”. After gulping down a version of my Banana, Kiwi and Kale Smoothies for 4 days straight, we also feasted on this lightened up soup 2 days in a row with a side of raw carrots and broccoli. That’s a lie. With a side of crusty bread is more like it…
Best part? Always?? This is a one-pot, 30-minute, lightened-up dinner-deal.
Go on. Fire up the stove. This is quick and easy. Painless. You deserve it.
P.S. Don’t forget to watch the Real Housewives tonight – I need someone to tell me what happened since I am going to be all busy and stuff with my guests. M’kay?? Thanks!
