As I mentioned on Facebook yesterday, it's finally cold in AZ- and by cold I mean 72 is the high. While fighting the tail end of my cold and the cold mornings and nights, the only thing that sounded good for dinner was some homemade soup. So, I literally searched my blog for soup recipes and came across this one that I pretty much followed to a T, only thing that I did differently was add some whole wheat noodles this time.
It was late when we finally sat down for dinner so this picture doesn't do it justice, but OH my goodness it was so darn good. I like adding a little cholula to mine for a little spice and it was just perfect. I'll definitely be making this many more times over the winter.
I also wanted to share with you guys what I did with the other half of my cabbage (since the recipe only calls for 1/2). I honestly was inches away from throwing it in the garbage- terrible I know- but decided to keep it and figure out something to do with it. After poking around pinterest I saw lots of different grilled cabbage recipes so that's what I did, and it came out really tender and really took away that harsh cabbage taste.
All I did was spray it with olive oil and sprinkled garlic salt and pepper on top then wrapped in foil and threw it on the grill on medium-high heat. I left it on for about 10 minutes and then flipped them over and did another 10 minutes. (For those of you dealing with actual cold weather, this can easily be done in the oven on 400 degrees.) We'll eat this with some marinated chicken and brown rice this week, along with our soup and turkey spaghetti sauce. Luckily, I'm back to normal workouts now that I'm feeling better so I will share tomorrows back workout with you guys once I come up with it!
