I’ve mentioned before how I don’t normally go to the theater to see movies, because it’s so expensive! Even if you go to a matinee, when the price is reduced, it’s still expensive. Tickets, snacks, drinks… it all adds up SO fast. However, I’m seriously tempted to go see Rogue One while it’s still in theaters, because we finally caught up on all of the others this weekend! We’re hooked. I never thought we’d all be Star Wars fans, but I think it’s safe to say that we might be. I kind of always have been but just slacked off on the new ones. I wanted to stick to the originals, the classics, but the new ones are SO good. So, if you haven’t seen them, I definitely recommend checking them out!

We’ve had a strange bird change in our yard this year. Normally we have a ton of little birds that hang out all winter long. I’ve seen fewer small birds and way more larger birds like cardinals, woodpeckers and groups of bluejays. We’re talking 4 or 5 bluejays at a time at the feeder, which is very unusual for us. They’re fun to see, but I do miss the smaller birds. The larger birds tend to scare all of the others away and hog the food. Tsk tsk!

Growing up, snow days meant soup and grilled cheese… and of course, hot chocolate! Classic winter comfort food. I always had chicken noodle… classic kid soup, that I still totally love. But, my mom always had tomato soup.

And, since it snowed this weekend, it’s a perfect time to share a tomato soup recipe!

This tomato soup is so creamy and ridiculously easy, but also packed full of flavor. To make it more filling, I added cheese tortellini… because who can resist pasta or cheese?!

This comforting slow cooker tomato tortellini soup is an absolute must make. A classic soup, perfect to warm up with on a cold winter day!

This is guaranteed to become a new favorite! Be sure to add it to your dinner plans!

    Right now I have neither an immersion or regular blender. Might I use my small Kitchen Aid portable mixer which has a whisk type attachment?

    • Rachel — January 10th, 2017 @ 7:15 am

      You could certainly give that a try, though I don’t think you’ll get a smooth texture using a hand mixer. It’s always worth a try though! If it’s an option, I’d recommend considering looking into even an inexpensive immersion blender for best results. Good luck!!

    Ugh I hate how expensive it is to go to the theatre! And with all the great movies out this year it’s like impossible to see them all…but I’m dying to catch La La Land! :D I’m still on the fence about going, or just waiting a little bit and enjoying it at the comfort of home with a bowl of this tortellini soup ;)

    • Rachel — January 10th, 2017 @ 7:16 am

      That’s how I always feel – wait and watch at home (aka cheaper and more comfortable) or go now, because I don’t want to wait six months!
