Turkey Tomato Soup


For the past month (?) I’ve been noticing that my vision is not what it use to be, even a couple of months ago.  I figured I just needed to update my prescription and all would be right with the world.

Yesterday, I went to the eye doctor and she could get my right eye to 20/20.  Now I’m freaking out.  What the heck am I going to do if I cannot see 20/20 out of one of my eyes.  She takes a closer look at my eye and I’m having some sort of inflammatory response to…?

And there is something like a rash on my eye, hence the reason I cannot see.  Now I’m on some steroid eye drops and hopefully the “rash” and inflammation is gone by next Tuesday so that I can get my eyes rechecked to update my prescription.

Please hope that it’s all better soon.  I’d like to see again.

Now for dinner tonight Alex and I made turkey and tomato soup with left over turkey and bits and bobs from around the kitchen.


  • About 2 cups chopped cooked turkey
  • 1 small zucchini, diced
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 small jalapeno, diced
  • About 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 14-oz can diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 box elbow macaroni
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Saute onions, zucchini, and jalapeno in extra virgin olive oil until soft.
  • Add turkey, broth, tomatoes, macaroni, basil, cumin, and pepper
  • Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until pasta is cooked.

Tomorrow, I think we are going to try are hand at minestrone.

The verdict:

Dianna: ” Not soupy enough, but good flavors”

Alex: “I like it.  I ate it all.”
