Brrr! Try These Kid-Friendly Soups To Beat the Chill

Recently the chill in the air has me looking for good soup recipes that my son will eat on his own at school, without me there to urge him on. So far I've had success with my Spaghetti-Sauce Minestrone (http://www.vingle.net/posts/647869), but I need a few more options. I found a great compilation of kid-friendly soup recipes on Hello Wonderful (link attached). Here are my three favorites! 1. Butternut Squash and Apple Soup From Simple Bites: http://goo.gl/ICLG4B It's a little more ingredient-heavy than what I usually go for, but it sounds so delicious that I'm going to try! Ingredients: 1 tablespoon olive oil 16 ounces cubed butternut squash, about 1 large squash 1 small leek, cleaned and sliced, about 1/3 cup 1 clove garlic, minced 3/4 cup cubed apple pieces 2 cups chicken or vegetable broth 1/2 cup water 1 bay leaf salt and pepper, to taste 1 teaspoon maple syrup 1 – 1 1/2 teaspoon fresh minced sage leaves 1/4 cup heavy cream or half and half Process: - In a dutch oven or deep cast iron skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil until shimmering. Add the butternut squash and saute over medium heat for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently. If the squash begins to brown, turn heat to low. - Add the prepared leeks and garlic to the pan with the squash. Saute for 1 minute. Add the apples and saute for another 2 – 3 minutes. - Cover the vegetable mixture with the broth and water. - Add the bay leaf. Simmer over medium-low to low heat until the squash and apples are very tender, about 7-10 minutes. Remove and discard the bay leaf. - Transfer mixture (carefully) to a blender or food processor and puree until smooth. - Add the maple syrup, sage and half and half or cream. Blend again until combined. Taste and then season with salt and pepper according to your preference. - Serve immediately. Garnish with cream, sour cream, and/or additional sage leaves if desired. 2. Hearty White Bean Soup From My Whole Food Life http://goo.gl/DwAZL8 Ingredients: 4 cups veggie stock 4 cups white beans (We use about 1 1/2 cups dried beans that expands to 4 cups after soaking.) 3 cloves garlic 6 organic carrots 6 celery stalks 1 bay leaf 1 medium yellow onion 1 T olive oil 1 T parsley 1/2 tsp sage 1/2 tsp thyme salt to taste Process: - In a food processor, finely chop the onion, celery, carrots, and garlic. - Put everything in a crock pot, turn on low, and let the contents slowly get warm. - After they are warm (about an hour), you can turn on high and let slow cook for some time. - The longer you can let it cook, the better. It's better to salt the soup after everything has had a chance to cool. If you salt a soup too early, you run the risk of it being too salty as some of the liquid inevitably boils off. 3. Lasagna Soup From Prevention RD http://goo.gl/TuABWj This one is great for the whole family! Yum... Ingredients: 2 tsp olive oil 12 oz turkey Italian sausage, casings removed 1 onion, chopped 3 garlic cloves, minced 2 tsp dried oregano 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes 2 Tbsp tomato paste 1 (28 oz) can fire-roasted diced tomatoes 2 bay leaves 6 cups low-sodium chicken broth 8 oz broken up lasagna noodles or fusilli pasta 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, finely chopped black pepper, to taste "Cheesy Goodness" (cute name): 8 oz low fat ricotta cheese 1/4 tsp salt pinch of freshly ground black pepper 2 oz (1/2 cup) 2% mozzarella cheese Process: - Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add sausage, breaking up into bite-size pieces and brown for 5-6 minutes. - Add onions and cook until softened, about 5-6 minutes. - Add garlic, oregano and red pepper flakes. Cook for 1 minute. - Add tomato paste and stir well to incorporate. - Add diced tomatoes, bay leaves and chicken stock. Stir to combine all ingredients. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. - Add uncooked pasta and cook until al dente, about 10 minutes. - Meanwhile, prepare the cheesy goodness. In a small bowl, combine the ricotta, salt, pepper, and mozzarella; stir to combine. - Add the basil and pepper to the soup; stir. To serve, place a dollop of the cheesy goodness in each soup bowl and ladle the hot soup over the cheese. My tummy is feeling warm and comforted already - I know my toddler is going to love these!

Pikachu Buns
I was in a baking mood and decided to try to make these! They came out good for my first time 😁😁 I'll post my recipes below if you'd like to try and make them. If you'd like the recipe, message me 😘 My bun recipe: -200g milk (Lukewarm) -5g active dry yeast -30g sugar --240g bread flour -60g all purpose flour -30g butter (room temp) -Egg wash Step 1: put lukewarm milk, sugar and yeast in a bowl. Whisk and set aside for 5min Step 2: in a separate bowl, combine bread flour and all purpose flour. Then add milk mixture. Add a pinch of salt and knead dough Step 3: after dough can take ball form, knead in the room temp butter. Knead until butter is fully incorporated. After incorporated, put in a lightly greased bowl cover with plastic wrap and set aside in a warm place for 30-40 min. Step 4: after 30-40 mins, take dough out. It should have doubled in size. Put flour on your finger and poke the middle of the dough. If it first bounce back, declare the air from dough and cut in 8 equal pieces. Form in to balls and set aside on a baking sheet for 10-15 mins. Make sure to cover with a lightly dampened cloth. Step 5: cut two areas on the doughball across from each other in a diagonal direction. Egg was the parts you cut in to. Sprinkle with sugar cover them again with a lightly dampened cloth and let them rest for 30 mins - an hour. They will double in size again Step 6: bake in an oven preheated to 400° for 10-12 mins and you're done! Chocolate pudding filling: -2 egg yolks -2 1/2 tbsp sugar -1 tbsp all purpose flour -1 1/2 tbsp corn starch -1 tbsp coco powder -200ml milk (hot) -2 tbsp butter -30g chocolate. I used four squares of semi sweet chocolate Step 1: whisk egg yolks and sugar together. In separate bowl, combine flour, corn starch and coco powder. Add mixture to yolk mixture and whisk together. Step 2: slowly add hot milk to the chocolate yolk mixture. When fully combined. Put yolk mixture through a strainer into a pot. Out put on burner and set to medium heat. Continuously whisk until mixture thickens to pudding consistency. Step 3: take off heat immediately and add butter and chocolate. Continue mixing until chocolate and butter mix in. Step 4: place plastic wrap directly on pudding and put in fridge to cool. After it cools, mix it again and add to piping bag.

What Are The Ridiculous Reasons Why These Kids Are Crying?
If you've ever babysat, parented, or pretty much existed within the general vicinity of a child for more than two minutes, you probably know that babies cry for the most nonsensical reasons. So do parents using Snapchat, who take that 24/7 baby-documenting that social media moms and dads are notorious for to a whole new level. They take a picture of their kid crying, they caption it with exactly WHY they're crying, share the picture, and boom. Instant hilarity. This is why people get convinced that babies and drunk adults are the same. Hey, you've got to let them teethe somehow, right? To be fair, waiting for freshly baked things to cool down is pretty much the worst. If it's a single-digit AM number, I'd be like this too. Imagine all the possibilities if you COULD though. He's not REALLY bad. Just a little misunderstood, right? Cue that 'Game Of Thrones' chant: "Shame! Shame! Shame! Shame!" It's okay. She's going to be grateful she didn't when she's older. I'd probably collapse on the floor too. The freakin' PRESIDENT! Hey, it doesn't mean he can't be upset! I feel like a LOT of little girls think they can marry their dads. I know some grown men that would cry because of this too. I appreciate how easy it is to entertain kids. "Here's a tampon." I like that he's all ready with his little fork too. Okay, but this picture actually made me want a pet lobster. Go away, brother! You're ruining the ambiance! This girl just needs to grab control of her life. AND her fork for that matter. So have you been around a little one who cried for stupid reasons? Or maybe YOU were that little one? I know my dad always reminded me of the first time he shaved off his mustache. I cried for hours because he didn't look like my dad anymore! @VIPFreak2NE1 @YumiMiyazaki @TurtleyTurtles @AlexTalley @atmi @CelinaGonzalez @iixel @humairaa @LysetteMartinez @drummergirl691 @ZoilaObregon @AnimeFan4Evr @SarahRegulski @poeticandfunny @tokyo514 @Outcastname @RachelParker @FrankilliMambo @EasternShell @supbroscene @Baoyi @VeronicaArtino @YunBao @buddyesd @HandsomeBacon
