Recently my camera decided that it was done with close-ups of frying fish and low-lit photo sessions with pico de gallo and quit on me. I was using it and for some reason the lens will not retract back into the camera. In all fairness, my camera was never anything special, but now I don’t have anything to take photos of my food with.
In a sense it’s a blessing because now I can solely focus on cooking in the kitchen and enjoying what I eat instead of spending so much time trying to capture a decent photo while my food gets cold. Usually, Mister is already done eating by the time I get to the dinner table. Plus, Black Friday is right around the corner. Fingers crossed that I can find a good deal!

Okay, about the soup. It’s savory and delicious and completely filling. I took Skinny Taste’s original recipe and made it my own. Although I absolutely love her and her work, (and in my very humble opinion) I thought the original broth was lacking in flavor. It was probably the brand of chicken stock I used but I definitely had to add more seasoning to make this work for us. In the end it turned out really good! Mister even went back for seconds. Success!
We had quite a few bowls to eat as leftovers for the next few nights too. The first time I re-heated the soup I put it in a pot over high heat and sort of forgot about it. By the time I got back to the kitchen, some of my poor tortellinis began to unravel. After that first mishap, I brought the soup up to just before a boil (keeping a careful eye on it) and it re-heated just fine. Lesson learned.
