One way we celebrate is the birthday person gets to pick their favorite food for Birthday Dinner. Each year, Leelee picks the same soup. It's great timing since her birthday is after Thanksgiving and the soup is a delicious way to use leftovers.
Today, Leelee turned 14. I can hardly believe it. She's very much in to Doctor Who and had a huge wish list of assorted Doctor Who items.
I swear she was just in first grade with her favorite teacher...
And seriously check out her STRAIGHT hair!
Now look at her...
Taller than I am and all sorts of curls! It takes four HOURS for her hair to dry. When she grows up, she wants to be a food scientist and upon retirement (yeah, she has retirement plans already!) she hopes to open a bakery.
Ok, enough gushing on my kid...
Here's her favorite soup. It's quick and easy...my favorite kind!
Turkey Broccoli & Wild Rice Soup
6 oz pkg Wild Rice mix (Uncle Ben's or Rice a Roni)
5 C water
10 oz frozen chopped broccoli
1 can cream of chicken soup
8 oz cream cheese
1 C shredded leftover turkey'
