Friendship soup

Hey guys,
So my mom,sister and I were hungry so we decided to make this soup and it was SO good. So all you soup lovers get out your pots, get notepad ,and write this  recipe down.  Also tune in for some pictures at the end of this post.

Friendship soup:
* 1 cup of mixed beans ( black,navy,pinto,black eyed)
* 2 quarts of water or chicken broth (we used chicken broth)
* 1/2 large carrot chopped
* 1/3 cup of coarsely chopped celery
* 8-10 ounce can of tomatoes ( we used retell)
* 1/3 cup chopped onion
* 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
* 1/2 teaspoon healthy season salt
* 1 tablespoon all-purpose herb mix (like Mrs. Dash)
* pepper to taste
* 1 or 2 cups of chopped chicken

Method : Chop all vegetables and chicken so they will be ready to add. Wash beans and place in a large pot. Add 2 quarts of water or chicken broth and bring to a boil. Add season salt, pepper, garlic powder,and herb mix. Simmer slowly for 3 hours or until beans are tender. Add your chopped carrots, celery, and onion. Simmer slowly for 1 hour or more if needed. Add tomatoes and heat though. Serve hot. You can cook this in a crock pot too.

I hope you enjoy it!!! I had so much fun making it. It was the perfect family project. Now here are those pictures:



Yesterday was 11:11:11. During school kids were buzzing about with a flow of anticipation in the air. It finally came to be 11:11:11 and there was a motion of peace. A moment where everything around you just came to be dead. I closed my eyes and thought of ....  Well I can't tell you or it won't come true. Sorry :)!!! Standing in the hallway my friends and I opened our eyes. It was like a new day. Teachers' stared at us in wonder of what we where doing.We hugged and said bye as we skipped off to class. After that everything just seemed to fall in place. The day just got a new fresh breath of life. I learned something from this one small moment of my busy Friday at school. The small thing in the day can bring an outburst. A breaking point is made. Take a moment let it all catch up with you. Give your day a new breath.
