2012 Quilt Pattern Block of the Month Fabric's

Pin It
I've purchased my fabric for 2012 Block of the Month, the white and blue.

Quilt Pattern Block of the Month Fabric's

The blue is to be the borders  (it may change to black).
How to choose Quilt Pattern Block of the Month Fabric's

My patterns are design inspired from Applique patterns, but are all pieced blocks.
Need good solid colors, mostly from my stash. 
Quilt Pattern Block of the Month Fabric's

Of course, I didn't like all the solids and added some pattern.

The blocks are looking very nice and I'm working away. January will start 2012 Block of the Month, I'll share more soon !

Weight Watchers Tortilla Soup done MY Way

Pin It

This is based on Weight Watchers 0 Point Tortilla Soup. But, I need meat in mine, I need the protein to keep me moving a bit longer. 

3 chicken breast,  in a pot with about 6 cups of water.
add 1 teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper. Cook until the chicken is done, remove skin/bones
Or if you are cooking Grilled Chicken the night before do 2-3  extra and
use 4 cups of Can Chicken Broth (easier)

tortilla soup chicken diced

Pull chicken out and shred.

cooking onions and celery

The Quilt Ladies Store

1 cup Chopped Onions Chopped
2 Garlic Cloves
3 Green Onions Chopped
 3-4 stalks of Celery Chopped
1/2 a Green Pepper
1/3 Cup Fresh Cilantro
Spray pan with spray oil.
Cook  in soup pan, make everything tender 10-15 minutes

Pour Chicken broth through a strainer and back into pot.(if homemade)

 Add Shredded Chicken

Add the rest of the ingredients  to the broth

2 - 12oz cans of Diced Tomatoes
1/2 cup Salsa, we like hot, use what you like
1 can Whole Corn - Or fresh off the cob
1/2 teaspoon Cumin
1/2 teaspoon Chili Powder
1/2 teaspoon basil

pot of Weight Watchers Tortilla Soup

Simmer and let cook down.
Serving Weight Watchers Tortilla Soup

Serve with Sour Cream (I use Greek yogurt)
And taco chips

 Suggestions
  • When you have leftovers after the holidays or party, make this soup, you can add anything to it and it's wonderful.
  • Try adding fresh spinach, cut up add in about 5 minutes before serving.
  • You can use any meat, shred turkey, shred roast beef or pork, if you use another meat or don't want to do your own chicken stock, use 4 cups of Chicken Broth
  • This is a make it your own soup.
  • We eat this year round, mostly I think because it's a great solo-lunch for me.
  • It's very good without meat, it will be a 0 Point meal with no meat.
