Hey, there, Monday! Nice to see you, again!

Hey, there, Friends! I loooove seeing YOU, again!

How was your weekend? Ours was cold. Like, literally, almost freezing kind of cold. We turned on the heat.
It was 52 degrees on Saturday. What the hell is that?

“Technically”, it’s still Summer. Therefore, this 50-degree weather needs to find another State to chill in for at least one more week.

Also? Every time that I use quotations around a word, I think of Joey.

Um. What do you mean Joey who??
Joey Tribbiani!

Remember that episode when he didn’t know how to use “quotes”? Remember?! Hi-larious, right? I LOVED IT!
I miss that show!

Well, not really. I mean, I watch reruns just about every night.

But, how about that one time when Joey referred to his Adam’s Apple as Joey’s Apple. HAHAHA
Or that other time when he thought that the name “Ross” was short for Rosstepher. LOL!!

OKAY! I’ll stop.

Last week I greeted you with Cinnamon Roll Coffee Cake, but today we’re kicking it off with a bowl of delicious, freakin’ amazing soup.

Since it was so cold over the weekend, this soup-talk seems very fitting.

I bought some ground Spanish chorizo about two weeks ago. It was practically calling my name even though I’m not really into spicy sausages. I like a little kick, but I hate when my throat’s on fire and a gallon of water won’t help me out.

So, there I am in my kitchen, trying to figure out what to do with the chorizo, AND without putting too much thought into THAT, I pulled my hair back, chopped up some garlic, cut up some onions, aaaand whoomp! There it is. I cooked it all in my dutch oven and made you this soup.

    I made this for dinner today. I have to say, I didn’t have high expectations, but it was DELICIOUS. I only had 12 oz of chorizo and used garlic powder (Didn’t habe garlic on hand). Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly and was very impressed. Next time I will double it for sure. Thank you

    Does anyone know how many this recipe is made for? I’m making this for my class of 30 people and need enough for everyone! Thank you.

  3. Beverly

    How long does this keep in the refrigerator? I made a pot Friday night and was hoping to finish it off tonight, Tuesday. I would hate to throw it out.

  4. Yum! I just made this soup for my husbands work lunches and he gives his approval. This is the first recipe of yours I’ve tried and now I want to go look for more! Thanks for the easy, quick, and tasty recipe!

  5. Your chorizo soup sounds delicious. I’m saving it to my ‘make one day soon’ folder.

    It was cold in my neck of the woods as well. A perfect time to make a big pot of hot soup … Chicken Tortilla in my case. And then I bbq’d on Sunday cause the sun came out for about 15 minutes while part of my roof was being reshingled. It was one of THOSE weekends that you laugh about years later.
