Matzo Ball Soup

Hope you are enjoying your Saturday!! Today was a busy day with a nice, lazy ending :). My day included the following:
  • Taught Body Step
  • Went food shopping for the week
  • Cleaned our wood floors
  • Washed and Vacuumed my car (it was 85 and very humid here today!)
  • Learned a portion of the new Body Step
  • Laundry/ironing
  • Football/napping

Josh and I plan to spend most of the rest of the night watching football and just relaxing. For dinner, I made soup (vegetable/bean for me, turkey/vegetable for Josh). I also cooked us up some matzo balls via a packaged mix (low sodium though!).

For Josh's soup:

Place a little EVOO in a pan, add chopped onions, celery, garlic, desired spices, and ground turkey and cook until turkey is done (no longer pink). Add frozen soup veggies and cook for 2-3 more minutes. Add in chicken broth and bring to a boil. Add matzo mix and cover. Turn heat down and simmer for 20 minutes. Top with cheese.


Mine was essentially the same, just no meat and I added the beans in when I added the matzo mix in. I also use vegetable instead of chicken broth.


Delicious and easy meal! Josh had a big roll with his and we both had some fruit on the side. Yummmmmy.
What are you doing tonight?

I had matzo ball soup about a month ago, not really knowing what it was - I got one giant baseball size motza ball! It was really goog though!

Mallard ended up at work until...well, tomorrow. So, Snuffy and I went to Children's Place and Gymboree to get her a Fall wardrobe! I found out my little fashonista loves to try on clothes. Then, we came home, indulged in some celery and Naturally More and watched some DVR'd "Say Yes To The Dress" . We had a fun girls' night!

Soup looks great!
What's the difference between the step class I take and body step? Is it just a new name for the same fun class? The step I take is a choreographed, complicated work out to music on the step.

Matzo ball soup is so good! I thought my days of enjoying it were over, but Ari's mom made a vegetarian version for me and it was fabulous. Yours looks great!
