Ever since moving, I tend to go to the grocery store once maybe twice a week. I usually like grocery shopping but here, you really have to plan when you are going to go. It seems like most of the time there are a lot of people at the store and it's hard to navigate your cart around everyone else. Plus, I am not 100% accustomed to the store yet so sometimes I have to really look for what I want which can also be difficult in a crowded store. This week, I have yet to get to the store. I did run into a Walmart Marketplace last night on the way home from renting Life as we know it but only picked up enough for last nights dinner. Luckily, I had some frozen chicken in the freezer and enough ingredients in the pantry to whip up this quick, easy, and tasty soup. I am not sure if someone has been paying my husband lately to say the food is the best he has ever had but tonight again, he said it was the best soup that I have ever made.
