This stuff is not quite chorizo (Spanish sausage) but it is still good! I scrambled mine with 3 egg whites and one egg yolk. It needs some salt and pepper and maybe a sprinkle of hot sauce!

I found mine at Sprouts Farmers Market near the tofu and vegan food alternatives in the dairy isle.

Soup for the soul

Well it is nice and chilly out in Austin, Texas! This weather is rare here. Most Texans hate the cold but we love it in our home! Our little pup Bobby despises this weather too…

20131124-210632.jpgHere is the little booger! He refuses to leave our bed…

This warm weather calls for some delicious and healthy soup! My hubby to be loves soup and he loves my Caldo! For those that are unfamiliar with Caldo must try it! It is a Spanish chicken and veggie soup. I make arroz (Spanish rice) on the side and soak it in my bowl of soup.  Hopefully I can write-up a recipe soon! This soup is very easy but it does take some time.  I do not recommend frozen or canned ingredients either.  This soup must be made fresh!  It can be made con pollo (chicken) or de res (with meat).


Check out those fresh and colorful veggies!!!


Here is the finished product!!

Stay warm out there friends!!!
