Chicken and Quinoa Soup

When minnie me asked for soup this morning I was shocked. She is normally a great eater but her requests usually include a little more sugar. Immediately I touched her forehead to make sure she wasn’t sick ( hey my mommy thermometer is very very accurate). Here is Bella’s favorite rainy day Soup!!
