{Recipes} Vegetable Soup

I don't know about where you ladies live but here in NC we have been having the most beautiful fall weather this week. The mornings and evenings are cool with temperatures in the 40's and 50's and during the day the temperatures are in the 70's range. It makes for a wonderful day of fall layers which makes me oh so happy. Sadly, our perfect weather is coming to an end this weekend. Winter temperatures are making their way into the forecast and we can expect to throw on our wool coats this weekend. Not that I'm exactly complaining. I'm ready to break those babies out. But enough about fashion, let's talk food. With the cooler temperatures on the horizon, the thought of a freshly made soup gets my mouth watering. Vegetable soup happens to be a family favorite and I have a family recipe that's tried and true. Today I thought I'd share it with you ladies since it's super quick easy. And let's be real, us mamas don't have hours in the kitchen (; Hope you ladies like it!

What You Need
- Pack of boneless chicken breasts/ tenderloins (I use tenderloins)
- Large can of crushed or diced tomatoes
- Can of creamed corn
- Can of peas
- 2 large or 3 medium sized potatoes
- 2 slices of fat back (optional)
- Salt and pepper

- Boil your chicken
- Once chicken is boiled, shred chicken with a fork
- Add water to remaining chicken broth (I add water until it fills up the pot about halfway)
- Add in tomatoes, creamed corn, peas, potatoes, and fat back
- Add salt and pepper to taste
- Let boil for several minutes then bring down to a simmer
- Cook until the potatoes are done

Serve it with some grilled cheese and you're set!
