m668csWowzers!  Another winning cookbook from my friends at Gooseberry Patch!  I again had trouble deciding but your first recipe review is for Chicken Enchilada Soup.  It LOOKS yummy!  And super easy!  Below is the recipe.  I wanted to go ahead with it – such staple ingredients that I thought you might want to try it tonight as well. It is so simple you can whip it up after a long day. I will be posting my review and pictures in the morning!  It’s a cold, wet day here and this is going to be delicious, I just know it!

After spending the last two and a half weeks at the hospital with my 85 year old mother I am ready for home cooking. Either my sister or I have been here 24 hours a day. My mom’s favorite pastime is reading cookbooks and she has passed that love to me. As of today her meals are coming from a can into a tube, but once she is out we will try many of these great recipes. as you each read these delicious sounding recipes take a quick moment and say a prayer for her please. Her name is Jean! Happy cooking!
