Chicken Florentine Soup & Rosemary's Baby

On Sunday, I made a Chicken and Potato Florentine Soup for dinner. I tried to follow the crock pot instructions but the soup was not cooking fast enough for me. I cooked this in the slow cooker for 2 hr and then dumped it in a pot on the stove for about 30 min. It was prettyyyyyy good! I liked it but I don't think Erik loved it. Served it with biscuits and had enough for leftover lunch. 

Chicken and Potato Florentine Soup



  1. Place chicken breasts and chicken broth in a pot and cook until chicken is cooked through (we simmered ours for a couple of hours). When done, take out your chicken and let cool. Pour your broth into a colander to strain. Set aside left over clear broth.
  2. When cool, shred chicken breast and add to your crock pot along with leftover broth, Italian seasoning, paprika, salt, pepper, diced tomatoes, carrots, potatoes, beans and water. Cook in the crock pot on low for 4 1/2 - 5 hours. 
  3. Stir in cream cheese until well combined. Cook soup for another half hour and add your spinach.
  4. Cook for 20-30 more minutes and right before serving add your 2 cups of Mozzarella cheese. Stir in cheese until it is well combined. Enjoy!
I also watched a terrible movie - Rosemary's Baby. This movie is SO old and is a classic but let me tell you what it really is. It is long, slow, and robs  you of any gratification at the end of the movie after you wait and wait for the big reveal. 

I actually just looked up the length of this movie and it is 136 minutes but it felt like it was 3 hours long. The movie is about a young, married couple who move into a NYC apartment and are befriended by this wacky old couple upstairs. The young, married couple want to have a baby but rather than do it the old fashioned way, the husband and the wacky old folks drug her and basically inseminate her with a devil baby. She thinks she is dreaming but she isn't. 

Throughout the course of the movie, everyone makes the Mother feel like she is crazy for thinking that she has a devil baby. When the baby is born, it's true - she had a devil baby. Here's the kicker - THEY DON'T EVEN SHOW YOU A PICTURE OF THE BABY!! Ahhhhh. 

I was waiting and waiting to see this thing and you get nothing! Movies have come quite a long way from 1968. Think about all the gory, disgusting movies that are out there and this film wouldn't even show us anything! Ahhh.
