over the weekend...

we kept it simple.

we took some walks in the beautiful dallas weather,

picked up some pinkberry and snuggled up on the couch to watch this movie,

made some delicious tortilla soup and cornbread,

skyped with this aunt and this aunt (and got a sneak peek of our sweet new nephew/cousin!)

and kissed these irresistible cheeks....

tortilla soup (compliments of sweet cousin ellie)

1 can corn (rinsed and drained)
1 can black beans (rinsed and drained)
2 cans diced tomatoes, or 4 large fresh (blend half for better consistency)
1-2 cans diced green chilies
1 large onion, chopped
1 large green pepper, chopped
1 1/2 tbsp cumin
juice of 2 limes (about 1/4 cup)
3 cups vegetable or chicken broth

put all the ingredients in the crock pot and cook until vegetables are tender. cook on high for 3-4 hours. for non-vegetarians, add chicken. top with chopped cilantro, sliced avocado, cheese, or any topping of your choice.

super easy-peesy. i love recipes thrown in the crock pot, that i don't have to think about until it's time to eat. delicious. thanks ellie!

Wait, what? Dallas has Pinkberry? You've got to be kidding me.

I hate Ironman. I'm sure you could've guessed that.

I love Noah.
