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

THIS SCHOOL YEAR (2018-2019): Our oldest child, EL, finished her formal education in May 2017. She remains at home due to her special needs, and continues to learn with us when she is able. JJ is in 10th grade this year. We intend to homeschool him through High School, and are using a variety of different curriculum choices to complete this goal.

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!
