This time of year is generally busy for us.... but have no fear--school is about to end which means we'll have more time to write!

Quick Updates:
-Jamie signed up to compete in the Charlotte Nathan's Qualifier but hasn't heard anything yet whether or not she'll get a chance to eat. Either way, we will be there to witness this event. Maybe I can get shot #3 as a bunnette??!!??

-We're thinking about driving up to Doswell VA for the Funnel Cake contest on May 23rd at King's Dominion. Eating contest + amusement park = a good time. Two of our all-time favorite things!

-July 4th plans are still up in the air.

-The new Dairy Queen Midnight Truffle Blizzard is one of the most delicious things I have ever eaten in my life. This thing should be added to the permanent menu.

Our Favorite Foods #5... Cream of Chicken Soup

Hello, Hungry Sisters Fans. I'm Carrie, S and J's older sister, and I would like to share with you our family's love of Cream of Chicken Soup. This has been a staple in our diet for all of our lives. When we were younger we only ate Campbell's Cream of Chicken Soup, but fortunately there is now the Healthy Choice version with lower calories, less fat, and less sodium. You also can purchase grocery store brand versions; I would recommend Laura-Lynn which can be bought at Ingle's Grocery Store. It is by far the best tasting...I even like it more than Campbell's!

We were initially introduced to Cream of Chicken soup as "gravy." That's how our crafty Memaw made gravy. Just heat up a can of cream of chicken with a half a can of water, and badda bing...GRAVY. When Sadie was little she practically lived off of rice and "gravy". Our parents would chop up green beans and hide them in her rice and gravy so she would get her green veggies. For holidays, Memaw would jazz up her "gravy" by adding turkey giblets, broth, diced hard boiled eggs, and some salt and pepper. Yummmmm.

Our mom, like every other mother of the south, used cream of chicken soup in her chicken casseroles. My mouth is watering just thinking about that delicious dish. You can also use it in many other southern casseroles and comfort food. MMMMmmm.My current quick and easy dinner is a can of cream of chicken, thinned with chicken stock, with rice mixed in. It's soupy-er than using it as gravy and it sure is delicious.

ahh...sweet memories

After a restless night of tossing and turning, I woke up to find this link to Wicked PR's Krystal Square Off pictures on eatfeats. Looking back on these pictures brought a smile to my face and joy to my heart :)

In other news, we FINALLY have school spring break this coming week and I will be visiting that wonderful southern wonderland known as Myrtle Beach. I have a feeling we will make a Krystal trip, since there is one in Murrell's Inlet...about 20 minutes from Myrtle Beach. Ahh I can't wait! There really is nothing in the world like Myrtle Beach days filled with 99-cent natty light on draft, watching Beach TV-Channel 33, and taking in all of that South Carolina sun. Myrtle Beach does a body good.
