Yesterday, my morning started out with my usual Thursday morning Bodypump class. I look forward to this class on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and I really LOVE starting my day with it!
After showering and getting ready for the day, I did something NOT so usual in my day…
I walked to work!
It was so great, and actually pretty relaxing. I live only 2 miles away from work in a very walkable part of town, so walking to work was no big deal. I really need to get in the habit of doing this more often, as I really think it set a great tone for the rest of my day.
Now that you have heard about my workout, there is a simple crock pot recipe I want to share with you:
I made up a big batch of this soup in the crock pot on Sunday to get Brian and I through the week. The soup has been great on it’s own, delicious when mixed with rice, and tasty when paired with a salad. This is another “keeper” recipe that is good to have on hand busy week nights.
The tomato and pepper flavors really give this soup a light and fresh taste rather than the warm and comforting taste that I often associate with soup. It still tastes good in, even in warmer weather!
Tomato Pepper Shrimp Soup (Adapted from Brazilian Shrimp Soup)
Place all ingredients accept shrimp into the crock pot. Allow to cook over low heat for 6-8 hours. During the last hour of cook time, place the shrimp into the crock pot with the rest of the soup. Allow the shrimp to cook thoroughly. Serve and enjoy!
I enjoyed my bowl of soup all on it’s own.
Brian enjoyed his soup over a bowl of brown rice.
I sampled both options and they were delicious!
Hope you all have a great Friday!
