Welcome! I am using this blog to share our family's homeschooling thoughts and experiences.

THIS SCHOOL YEAR (2016-2017): We will be using a variety of different curriculum this year, with Notgrass' Uncle Sam and You as our main History, Bible and Literature focus. Our oldest, EL, is in 12th grade this year, but has special learning needs due to autism. JJ is our youngest, an active boy with Tourette Syndrome. He is in the 8th grade.

Please feel free to follow along....

HOME EC: Easy Tortellini Soup

This is one of our family's favorite soups to eat on a cool day. It is quick and easy to make, and very tasty. Now that JJ has helped me make it, I want to see if he can make it on his own next time. 

This recipe feeds our family of 4 for two nights. On the 2nd night, you will need to add some extra water/broth because the tortellini soaks up a lot of the liquid when it sits overnight. 

Easy Tortellini Soup
 8 cups chicken broth
4 cups water
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 19-20 oz. bags frozen cheese tortellini
2 cups baby broccoli florets

Here are most of the ingredients. I use Better Than Bouillon Chicken Base to make the chicken broth. Just mix 6-8 tsp. into the water.
JJ is adding the tortellini. Bring the liquids to a boil before adding them. 

After the tortellini has boiled for about 5 minutes, add the frozen broccoli and cook another 5 minutes.

Ready to be served!
Sharing the soup with friends!
