Chorizo Rice Bean Soup & The Weekend

We had a very busy weekend.
A very spiritual weekend.
Johnie's son was baptized on Sunday.
We spent the whole entire day with him.
And we are very proud of him.
We started the day with lunch on the grill.
We found these great big thick pork loin chops 
at our local Kroger.
Johnie seasoned them all up,
grilled them slowly,
and kept them moist with BBQ sauce.
And we ended the day with ice cream at a
local ice cream shack.
Perfect day!

I'm stuck on soup.
One of my very favorite comfort foods.
This is some of the best soup I have ever had.
No LIE!!
The flavors are just awesome.
If you like a little spice in your life you will love this soup.
And when the snow is flying this winter.....
You can read that very quietly if you want to.
This soup will for sure warm you up.
My kitchen smelled just like a Mexican restaurant while I was making it.
One of those aromas that keeps you going,
This recipe came through my Pages Feed on Facebook.
I am so glad I pinned it.
The inspiration came from the Web Site, Diethood.
I made a few changes, 
and like always if you want the original give Diethood a visit.
Yesterday Johnie worked a 13 hour shift.
So he was not here for dinner.
I packed his soup in his lunch today.
I can't wait to hear how he liked it.
