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."


  1. Change the name, not the recipe!
    It looks DELICIOUS!
    Hey, I'm sorry about the eye troubles... you have my concern and healing prayers.

  2. Eyes are very tricky things! I hope yours get better soon and you find out whether you need glasses. The soupy pasta looks interesting =D
