Tortellini Veggie Soup

Tortellini Veggie Soup

This is not my recipe, it is my mom’s. She is very good at making soups, Chinese food (honestly I’m not sure how- but her Chinese is great), and lots of other things. Last week, she made a Lemon Orzo Chicken Soup… that was great. This week, she made this Tortellini Veggie Soup. With the constant dropping temps, the snow storms plowing in, the sun setting earlier and earlier every night, soup is a wonderful, cozy meal this time of year. I have a whole line up of soups I am dying to make, or have my mom make, over these winter months.

This soup is so good, and packed with veggies!

After I had this Tortellini Veggie Soup for dinner last night, I went to cycling and the word of the day was “Christmas”. All of the songs are mashed together, meaning there are 2 or 3 songs with the same underlying beats put together… all of the songs last night had Christmas songs mixed with them. Needless to say, I came home in a great mood, our Christmas tree was looking fantastic, I made myself a cup of Candy Cane Green Tea (decaffeinated). You can read about the tea here. I bought this tea from Trader Joe’s a month or so ago. I laid on the couch by the tree, with my candy cane tea and my book “Everything I Never Told You” and had a wonderful night. Ohhhhhhh the post-grad joy’s in life…

The most wonderful time of the year!
