Thankful Thursday Thanks to Brian!


 Thanks to Brian for Thankful Thursday! We were just now talking to our good friends in Weed California....and we once again realized how much we appreciate our few years living there and how much we miss our sweet friends there. 

We only wish we could be in living in two places at the same time..... if only................but that doesn't happen does it?

Bees are very important !
They pollinate a third of our food. That's right!
One out of every three bites you put in your mouth was pollinated by honeybees. In addition to pollinating crops such as apples, almonds, broccoli strawberries, cucumbers and cotton, bees also pollinate alfalfa seeds which are used for beef and dairy feed.
And let's not forget the honey they make!
Thursday May 20, 2021 is Bee Day!
Have a sweet and awesome day every day!!

According to Wikipedia: The ocelot is a wild cat native to the southwestern United States, Mexico, and Central and South America, as well as the Caribbean islands of Trinidad and Margarita. A medium-sized cat, it is characterized by solid black spots and streaks on its coat, round ears, and white neck and undersides. 


Z is for Zesty Mexican Soup!


Here's the recipe! It's been super fun putting together 
this years A to Z challenge! Hope you enjoyed it too!

Zesty Mexican Soup

Ingredients:
2 cups cubed cooked chicken 
1 can (14 oz) chicken broth
1 can (11.5 oz) vegetable juice cocktail
1 can (11 oz) whole kernel corn, 
red and green peppers, undrained
1 cup Old El Paso™ Thick 'n Chunky salsa
1 can (4.5 oz) Old El Paso™ chopped green chiles
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro 
Directions:
1. In large saucepan, mix all ingredients except cilantro. Heat to boiling over medium-high heat.
2.Reduce heat to low; simmer 10 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring occasionally. Stir in cilantro.

This is a perfect soup for when you want to fix dinner quickly and it's tasty too! Enjoy!
