Slow Cooker Sunday: Chicken Tortilla Soup

I've been a complete slacker on Slow Cooker Sunday lately, but it's a bit cold here at the beach.  And, I am feeling the need for some yummy soup.  I am going to try Chicken Tortilla Soup tonight.  I found THIS recipe on Campbell's Soup website.

1 cup Pace Picante
2 cans Campbell's condensed cream  of chicken soup
1 pound skinless chicken, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
2 cups frozen whole kernel corn
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 soup can water
1 teaspoon ground cumin
4 corn tortillas, cut into strips
1 coup shredded cheddar cheese
1/3 cup chopped cilantro

How to Make It:
1) Stir the picante, soup, chicken, corn, beans, water and cumin into slow cooker
2) Cover and cook on low for 4 to 5 hours or until chicken is cooked through
3) Stir tortillas, cheese and cilantro into cooker.  Cook for 15 minutes.

Off to the beach for a walk w/ Izzie the puppy!  That is after I wake Izzie up!  :0  Happy Sunday!

You have two choices...

With every breath and step of your day and life, you have two choices: 1) start from a place of positive or 2) not.  What do you tend to do?

I personally would rather approach life with a positive perspective.  Happy Thursday!!

2014 for me...

I wrote THIS post just before the new year....but for some reason while I know definitively what I want 2014 to be...I couldn't come up with the exact words until now.  As usual, it hit me like a ton of bricks during yoga this evening.  I have two mantras in life: 1) Be where your feet are and 2) Do more of what makes you happy and less of what doesn't.  If I live by those two mantras more days then not...then life is good.  So, in 2014, I wanna keep it simple and remember those two mantras daily.
