A dinner worth making...

Tomato Tortellini Soup

1 can chicken broth
8 oz. tortellini
1 can tomato soup
1/2 tub of chive & onion cream cheese

Boil tortellini in chicken broth until tender. In a separate bowl, using about 1/4 cup of the hot chicken broth, combine with cream cheese. Whisk until melted. Add tomato soup to tortellini. Pour melted cream cheese and broth back into soup. Stir all together.
Makes about 4 servings
**I would double the recipe and use the whole tub of cream cheese doesn't make much and you will want more!

Yummy Breadsticks
(Read directions carefully)

1 1/2 cup warm water
1 TBSP yeast
2 TBSP sugar
3 1/2 cups flour
1/2 TSP salt
1/2 cup butter
Garlic salt
Parmesan cheese

Mix first 5 ingredients and knead for 3 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes. Heat oven to 375. Melt 1/2 butter on cookie sheet in oven. Roll out dough and cut into long thin strips. Twist and place in butter, put them very close together, they will easily peel apart. Sprinkle with garlic and parmesan cheese ( a little more than a sprinkle is good!). Let rise for 30 minutes. Bake for 20 minutes at 375. Makes lots and they are yummy for a few days!

Pictures are not very good, but these recipes are YUMMY! Enjoy!

Happy 3rd and Happy Thanksgiving!

Tuesday the 24th is our 3rd year anniversary! I cannot believe it has been three years.. time sure goes by fast. It has been a great three years and I am so grateful for everything Braeden does for me. We went for a nice sunday walk today at Snow Canyon State Park. It was nice to just relax and have some fun with each other.
Being Thanksgiving this week I was thinking of the things I am grateful for. I am so grateful for the beautiful earth that we live on that Heavenly Father and Jesus created for us. I am so grateful for my family and friends and for the gospel we have in our lives. I love this time of year! Hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving this week! Thanks to everyone who has made me smile :)

Still HERE!

So we have been way busy this semester and glad it is almost over! Two more semesters till we are done! YAY! We really have not been up to much so I never had anything to blog about. Yes our life is pretty boring right now, but hey it will get more exciting in years to come! The only real exciting thing we have done this last semester that was adventurous was we went repelling with our friends Nate and Rachel in Vegas. That was so much fun. It was kind of scary, but I did it and I was proud of myself!

It doesn't look like I'm scared... but I was

We had so much fun thanks guys!
