I just came back from Chicago and I am so excited to tell you about my great weekend. I stayed there from Thursday to Monday afternoon. I loved everything from that beautiful city, especially the deep dish pizza. OMG, what is that? ABSOLUTELY D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S!!! I couldn’t get enough of it. Please don’t judge but I have to confess … I even had the leftovers for breakfast next morning. I know, I know… this is not healthy, but once in a while, it’s okay, right? And what about the Sprinkles Cupcake store, guys? Their cupcakes are awesome!! I’ve never tried a cupcake from Sprinkles before, but now I am in love! Oh, Gosh … why don’t we have Sprinkles in Canada?
My childhood friend showed me everything I wanted to see like the Millennium Park, Willis Tower, and the Chicago River Architecture Tour. We also went to the RPM Steakhouse and let me tell you guys … IT WAS DIVINE! It was one of the best restaurants I’ve been to. I truly recommended this restaurant if you want to taste a marvelous, good quality meat. But unfortunately, the weather wasn’t very good. It was actually very cold, but I am used to this type of weather since I live in a winter land 😉
So, talking about the cold weather, why not to make a delicious soup recipe? Is there a better food for the chilly days? I guess not. Nothing beats a warm and delicious bowl of homemade hot soup when the temperatures are below zero. It is so easy to make and healthier than canned soup. Those cans should be forgotten forever, right? Making soup is so easy. There’s really no excuse for buying canned soups.
This filling Pasta Soup with Sweet Potato and Peas is full of fiber, low in fat, and a quick-and-easy go-to meal. This time I decided to add brown rice pasta to make this soup even more of a comfort food. For soup, we should use a small pasta. A good rule is the thinner the soup, the smaller the pasta. For broths and light soups, select from a large assortment of tiny shapes.
