This recipe was a huge hit! I loved it! It was pretty simple to make as well, all in one pot! (Besides the grilled cheese of course).
1 tbsp butter
1 small onion diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
3 tsp Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
3 tbsp flour
3 cups chicken broth
1 (28-oz.) can diced petite tomatoes
3 tbsp tomato paste
4 cups 4-cheese tortellini, frozen
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup frozen (thawed a bit) chopped spinach
salt to taste
black pepper to taste
In a large pot over medium heat, melt butter. Add onion and cook until translucent. Add garlic and cook until fragrant. Add Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes and flour and whisk to combine. Cook about 1 minute.
Add broth, tomatoes, tomato paste, and tortellini. Bring to a boil, and then simmer about 10 minutes or until tortellini is cooked.
Add the cream and Parmesan cheese and stir. Add spinach and cook for a couple minutes.
So my intention for this blog/website is to share food recipes, happenings in Derek and I’s life, decorating and crafts. Well I guess this one would go along the lines of happenings in our life.
We have put our current home up for sale. Derek and I knew we always wanted to build our dream home some-day, and well, that time has come. We have absolutely LOVED living in our current home and love everything about it. With that being said, it’s time to move forward and keep pushing for our dreams to come true.
If you know anyone looking in the West Fargo area, look no further. We have truly loved this home and given it some great upgrades! We built a deck on the back of the house, landscaped, put in a fireplace feature wall in the living room area, painted some walls and some other work around the home making it the beautiful place we call home at this time.
We appreciate it! Also, I hope you’re all ready for a TON of posts in the near future hopefully with updates on construction etc. of the new home. Pending the sale of our current home, we should start construction in the spring of 2020.
Back in December (I believe it was) I surprised my hubby with tickets to see his favorite musician, Kenny Chesney. Time flew by and before we knew it, we were on our way to Sioux Falls for the day/night to enjoy the concert. We of course took some extra time out and visited a few spots in the city for some exploration.
I’ve seen MANY pictures etc. of the falls, but have never actually been there. Well, I finally made it! It also, did not disappoint. So beautiful!
Next we discovered the Japanese Gardens. This was probably one of my favorite spots in the city. SO very beautiful and peaceful. It almost seemed like a hidden gem of the city.
We also got a suggestion from an awesome colleague of mine to visit a local brewery called Remedy Brewing. I have to admit, this is probably on my top all-time favorite breweries I’ve visited. The beer was SPECTACULAR and the environment was very unique and relaxing. Of course we had to try the candied bacon. 🙂
We topped off the night witnessing a truly epic concert. So happy we were able to make this happen and enjoy another AMAZING weekend together! ❤
Derek and I just recently returned from a vacation to Kansas City. We had an absolute blast the entire time!
I don’t think most people would think of Kansas City as a vacation, but they couldn’t be more wrong. Only a 10 hour drive away, it was just the right distance to get away for a bit.
Often known as the “City of Fountains” that aspect surely didn’t disappoint. Every few feet of walking it seems to provide a new different, unique fountain to look at. I’m sure we didn’t even begin to see the coolest of them.
One of my favorites was the Power & Light district in downtown. We often found ourselves walking around talking about how we don’t know why more cities don’t create something like this. If you ever get the chance, definitely go check it out!
Another great stop we made was the Kansas City Zoo. In my personal opinion, it was just the perfect size. Not too big, not too small. Besides, they have PENGUINS!!!!! Not to mention how neat it is of how CLOSE you really get to get to them! ❤
One of the places I think is probably most often over-looked is the Kauffman Memorial Garden. OMG! So amazing and beautiful!
I also have to include a special THANK YOU to our amazing friend Tricia, who rode along and really helped make this trip truly memorable! ❤ Who doesn’t love traveling with one of their best friends?
Overall, if you get the chance, take a road-trip to Kansas City and enjoy the place! I hope we get a chance to make it out again sometime soon, and hopefully that time the Royals or Chiefs will have a home game we can check out!
