White Bean Chicken & Kale Soup

This soup was inspired by one of my favorite bloggers recent dinner posts, @LivingwithLandyn. She's fun, down to earth and always has some really great ideas for healthy dinners. It's also very similar to the white chicken chili soup that I love SO much that we eat it at least once a month! 

We have been incredibly busy this month. We recently sold our home in Baton Rouge (Thank GOODNESS) and we spent this past weekend getting our stuff from the house into storage in Birmingham. One step closer to getting into a new house here in the Ham! Please be praying that we find the perfect (imperfect is fine too...) house. This feels like such a refreshing new chapter in our lives. I could not be more thankful to be back in our favorite city. 

Back to the soup! I know, I know... you are probably thinking "WHY SOUP IN THIS HEAT!?" Well, because I love soup and I am preeeetty sure you'll understand after you give this one a shot. Now the secret ingredient is the GREEN DRAGON HOT SAUCE from Trader Joe's. If you do not have access to a Trader Joe's, no problem, I've linked the sauce on my SHOP tab!! I keep a lot of links to my most recently used things over there so don't forget to check that out.

White Bean Chicken & Kale Soup

Simple Asian Cashew Chicken Salad

We had such a great long Memorial Day Weekend! Saturday we got to meet up with some friends for the Salsa Showdown at a local brewery. Sunday we spend the day relaxing and playing outside in what was supposed to be rainy weather but turned out to be really nice and sunny. Yesterday we spent the day prepping food for a family dinner. We make bacon wrapped jalapeΓ±os filled with cream cheese, jalepeno sliders, grilled chicken and baked beans. I had some pineapple coconut cream cake with homemade vanilla ice cream because it would have been a tragedy to have not. We ended the night playing outside with the kiddos. 

Someone please bring me all the coffee this morning because I am not ready! 

I wanted to share this reallllly simple salad that is really healthy if your on a diet or just downright delicious even if your'e not!
