Last week, my sisters and I went to lunch. We do this often, and always for our birthdays.

I love this quote that I found on Pinterest. It says it all.

Sister quote
I’m also really going to miss my sisters when we move! (sniff-sniff)


(Fortune Drive, Medford, Oregon 1967–pretty sure we were headed to Sunday School.)

There’s nothing quite like a sister. We’ve had some pretty fun times together – here, here, and here.

Organizing and cleaning the pantry

I also think back to one of my birthday gifts years ago, a gift to help me organize and clean out my pantry. Only a sister would take the time to do this, right? Hee hee. I have the best sisters!

Since I actually did clean through my pantry last week, I whipped up a healthy vegetable soup, made mostly with what was in my pantry!

Simple, with tomatoes, beans (actually, black-eyed peas), corn, and stock.

Add the beef or ground turkey.

And of course, the flavor of the soup is all in the seasoning, right?

I’ve been using Rodelle’s Texas Style Briskett Rub.

Sweet and smokey with a hint of heat.

It goes well with chicken, pork chops, steak … and soup!

So we added fresh Parmesan that I brought home from my recent trip to Italy, with fresh basil from the garden.

Served with cherries on the side and lemon bars for dessert.

I’d say the perfect, light summer meal!

  1. This looks so delicious! I make meals all the time like this when we haven’t had time to make it to the store in a couple weeks. We tend to have what I call tortilla soup, which is literally anything I find in the cabinet with a tomato based soup! But it’s always delicious! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Love this kind of soup, getting creative with what’s in the pantry and fridge floats my boat! :)

    Also love the sweet pic of you and your sisters as kids and as adults… all three of you are beautiful!! (are you in the same order in both pics, in other words who’s who, just curious! :) My only sister passed away suddenly fourteen years ago, and I miss her and that special relationship sooo much!! :( But the Lord has been good to send me many great women friends through the years who are like sisters to me! (We gals can’t live this life without our sistas by our side!! :)
    Blessings to you! chris

    • Hi, Chris. Yes, we are in the same order (I didn’t even notice). :) I agree, there’s also nothing quite like great women friends who are like sisters! xo
