Chicken and Rice Soup

I have been wanting to eat nothing but soup lately - with the cool Autumn weather blowing in! So of course I've been on the internet looking for new recipes, and of course, making some of my old favorites. Tonight I made Chicken and Rice soup from my mother-in-law's website. It was very easy and very quick. It serves 8-10; I made the full recipe and put half of it in the freezer - so now we have another dinner just waiting for us. YUM! Here's the link.

P.F. Chang's Lettuce Wraps

One of our favorite restaurants is P.F. Chang's. Eric took me to dinner there the night he proposed to me, so it's always been a special place to us. And you really can't go to P.F. Chang's without ordering the lettuce wraps. Well, Eric found this recipe online and has made them for me twice in the last couple weeks (he's so good to me). So, here's the link...enjoy!

PS...if you have not been to P.F. Chang's - go NOW! And if you order nothing but the lettuce wraps, I assure you it will be worth it!
