I hope everyone had a FABULOUS weekend. It was gorgeous here in Colorado. It was sunny and in the 70s. The peaks were covered in snow, and it was one of the best views of the Front Range I’ve seen in quite a while. I pretty much spent my Sunday packing some things up around the house. We are getting closer and closer to the big move! Eek! So exciting! So anyway, let’s talk food, shall we? I know I have talked endlessly of this, but I get so much satisfaction when I can eat something lemony! Unfortunately, I don’t eat it very often because for some reason unbeknownst to me, Zach hates the stuff. I know. I know! I love chicken and lemon orzo soup. It’s by far one of my favorites. It’s so hearty and full of nutrients. It’s also so warming, which is great during the Winter months. I also love it when I’m not feeling so well. It’s an extremely simple recipe and it certainly won’t break the bank in expensive ingredients. It’s the perfect chicken soup so give it a try!
Isn’t it gorgeous?! I seriously love where we live. <3
Beer: Elysian Brewing Company’s Loser Pale Ale
Brewed By: Elysian Brewing Company
Style: American Pale Ale
Description:The day I found out that Elysian would make Loser Pale Ale available all-year round was a very happy one. It’s one of the best pale ales out there, with the crispness you crave you with a pale ale. It has a wonderful citrus quality and is perfectly light and refreshing. It also has a nice malty finish, which I just love with a good pale ale. I wanted something refreshing, yet robust with flavor for this soup. Anything “crazier” would take away from the flavors in the soup. It’s a great beer and a superb pairing for this chicken and lemon orzo soup!
I seriously need a bowl of this soup. It looks fantastic!
Thank you Jocelyn! It certainly was just what I needed!
