A little recap from my July 4th weekend - the hubs and I drove to Oklahoma with our doggies to see his grandpa. We did a little shopping at some antique stores and came home with some fun stuff. I need to take photos so I can show you. I loved that grilling apron...he's totally my Mr. Right!
We watched "Oklahoma's biggest fireworks show" in Vinita on Grand Lake, had a picnic on the lake the next day and enjoyed ice cream from Braum's. Grandpa Bill and his girlfriend are fun to be with!
And we only packed red, white and blue clothes! Haha! That's easy with a hubby obsessed with the Texas Rangers!
So I finally got a new phone! Woo hoo! I've been sporting the iPhone 4s for quite some time and finally got the 5s. I might be a little obsessed with my new case.
that's navy blue (looks a little black in this photo), gold, cream, and coral
Before we left for our Oklahoma trip, I needed to do something with all of my produce that would go bad while we were gone. I surprised myself and made an awesome, healthy soup that we could freeze and enjoy later!
2 chicken breasts (cooked)
1 large yellow squash
1 large tomato
1-2 large carrots
1 medium white onion
2 celery stalks
1 garlic clove
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
I sauteed the chopped zucchini, squash, onion and garlic in the EVOO and then threw all of the ingredients in a large pot and let them simmer for about 45 mins. Honestly, I just used the rest of my chicken broth (maybe 2 cups) and filled the rest with water. I eyeballed it on the spices.
It was such an easy way to use random, healthy ingredients. I recommend it when you feel like being creative!
Have a wonderful weekend, lovelies!!! XOXOXO
