This last sunday evening our house was filled with family and great food once again! This weekend we dined on my homemade tortilla soup, cornbread (TJ's has the best), salad from my mum-in-law and her first ever homemade lemon cake (amazing). The evening was a sweet start to a full week.
I really love sundays!

That TJ's cornbread is killer. My homemade can never taste as good as that boxed stuff.

Thanks for the feedback guys! Unfortunately, I don't have many drawings that I have done like this...it was from an art class I took. And the soup is my own concoction that I've never written down but basically is:

6-8 chicken pieces breasts/tenders
1 small diced onion
1-2 tbsp olive oil to cook chicken
1 box org. tomato red pepper soup
few cups chicken broth
1 zucchini diced
1 can org. diced tomatoes
1 can org. black beans
1 cup frozen org. corn
1/3 or so cup chopped cilantro
LOTS of cumin

for garnish:
blue corn tortilla chips
sliced avocado
shredded cheese
sour cream

Super Yummy!!!!

Hope you like:)
