Spinach Chicken Orzo Soup
I really wanted to use the piano space to do some rearranging of furniture (imagine that!) so we asked Danielle if wanted it and since she did, we made a delivery this weekend. (More like I watched people load and unload it). And of course I wanted to bring some food. So back to my dinner - this meal was so easy to put together. A few simple ingredients and about 30 minutes is all you need... keep this one in mind when you are short on time...and feel free to add other veggies - the more might be merrier!

Sunday night I received a text from Danielle, the entire pot of soup was consumed...between her, her BF, Kristina and Benj (and a quart I kept for us)... yeah - glad they enjoyed it! I also made Pumpkin Caramel parfaits... coming to you later this week...
