This morning the dog woke me up (as usual) at around 5:30 am. I get up, put clothes on, take her out, and when we get back, she promptly takes my spot and falls asleep. Instead of getting crabby, I take this time to update my spark, and make chicken and tortellini soup with the leftover tortellini. I know myself. If I had left the tortellini out, I would have eaten a huge lunch (well, if I remembered to eat lunch) with tortellini and too much marinara sauce, and way too much parmesan. Instead I grilled chicken breasts, sweated onions and garlic, and added the chicken drippings and chicken broth I keep on hand for soup along with the leftover tortellini and some rosemary. I had the lovely smell of rosemary and chicken simmering by 7:30 this morning, and a lighter lunch may follow! After one of the loves of my life and I go for a long run, that is (the dog, not the husband. He can't run as far as we can!).
