Rabbit Soup

Rabbit Soup, what kind of name is that.  Well that's what my husband calls this soup and he does not eat it (he doesn't like veggies, hes a meat eater).

Well my Lexi girl LOVES this soup and will devour a whole heaping bowl each time I make it.

So supper easy

Chicken Stock
Frozen Broccoli
Favorite cheese Ravioli (we use Tortellini)

and about 25 minutes to make.

The ingredients, I used about 1 cup to 1 1/2 cups of all the ingredients.
When your stock comes to a bowl add cauliflower and carrots.  Cook for 10 minutes.
Add broccoli and tortellini and cook for 7 more minutes.
Lexi Girls cool bowl, she had a heaping bowl full and ate every bit of it.
Alivias cool bowl
Yummy. That's my bowl.
Yummy yum.

Alivia LOVED the broccoli and carrots.
She didn't care for the cauliflower or tortellini.

Valentines Drop Box

Been almost 5 months since I posted something. YIKES. I hope to post more ofter now that I am part time and only work 3 days a week.

I recently say on The Iowa Farmers Facebook page this idea to make a drop box.

It was originally a Snow Flake drop box but since Valentines was coming up I thought why not a Hear drop box.

I got my jar from hobby lobby. Its a 4X4 round and 5 1/2 inches tall. Its glass with a screw plastic lid.
5.99 but on sale 50% off. 

I The Wooden Cirlces were also from Hobby Lobby. The Tree House Studio, they called them Wooden Nickles, 22 pieces, item # 622191

From the Dollar store i got the Pink glitter Foam stickers. I only used half of them so I still have enough for another project or to let Lexi girl use them as she chooses.

I used some hear stamps from my collection and different pink inks also from my collection/stash.

The Jar.
Decorated with the Foam Hear glitter stickers, theres a big heart at the top of the jar.  After the girls played with it Lexi girl had moved some of the stickers so I will need to keep an eye out for stickers that are loose before giving to Alivia Pivia to play.
The wooden circles.
A background heart stamp, I find it easier to ink the top and apply the wood circles to the top rather then putting the background stamp on top of the wood shape.
All 3 stamps I used.
Finished stamping, showing the different colors of pink and red inks I used.
Miss Alivia Pivia collecting them and putting in the jar.
She played with this for almost an hour straight. And still is carrying the jar around the house.
Who's that in the back, Miss Lexi Girl.

Pause for TV.
OK back to playing.
