  BoulderOrganic! Soups (formerly Boulder Soup Works)

This winter has had the weirdest weather.  It was warm and in the 70's over Christmas break, to the point where we had shorts on at many times when out and about.  Now, we are finally getting cooler temps and I for one love it.  Give me cold over hot any day and I am good!  (You can keep the ice and all that mess, just give me the colder temperatures!)  When the weather gets colder, I enjoy soups from time to time.  Maybe even a soup and sandwich combo?!
I was recently given the chance to review soups from Boulder Organic.  




With seven amazing soup varieties to choose from, consumers who demand the highest quality ingredients can now relax when they don’t have time to shop, prep and prepare soup in their own kitchens. The Boulder Organic! line of soups are made artisan-style in small-batches, with certified organic, non-GMO ingredients, featuring fresh vegetables, herbs and spices mostly sourced from farms in the Western United States. And all varieties are gluten-free. 
The current offerings include two soups with a chicken broth base and five vegetarian varieties:

Roasted Tomato Basil (chicken broth)
Green Chile Corn Chowder (chicken broth)
Red Lentil Dahl 
Garden Minestrone  
Golden Quinoa and Kale
Potato Leek 
Butternut Squash Soup with Sage

I will tell you, when I went to get this soup, I could not find it. (I am not one that seeks out organic foods, but when I try them, they are so tasty!) These particular soups are kept in the cold section, so it took a minute. Silly me, I looked in the section that said SOUP.  Once I got home, I was eager to try them out.  Our local store only had the Roasted Tomato Basil and the Green Chile Corn Chowder.  They were both really delicious with the Tomato being my favorite. I really want to try the Cuban Black Bean Soup and the Golden Quinoa and Kale Soup.  Of the two I tired, they had a great flavor and I was surprised that Marc enjoyed them as well.  
If you are one that enjoys soup, I would recommend you heading out to buy a couple of tubs of the soup for yourself.  Just click on the FIND SOUP locator link on their site to see what location is nearest you!  What soup would you like to try first?

This kid of mine!!!!  I can not figure him out!  He is totally his own person and it makes me smile watching him grow into his own being.  He is a lover of LEGO, Minecraft, Star Wars and Kidz Bop! We have had Kidz Bop for several years, but since he has started school, the love has really grown. With the cold weather finally here now, they have indoor recess more and more now.  What I learned was that on the days of indoor recess, they have now started having Kidz Bop dance parties!  I love it! Now that the new CD has been being advertised on TV, he has been asking about it over and over again.  The day it arrived, we had to put it in the car to start our daily jam session. I can't tell you if the whole CD is good or not, we have yet to make it past song number 5 "HOTLINE BLING."
Soon enough, soon enough!  (I want to hear Ex's and Oh's, I recently heard it on TV and love it!) 
If you have a younger child, don't you worry... You will need to get it to enjoy to.  Sang by kids, it is a CD you don't have to worry about being "kid friendly!"  This would be great to buy and send in for your child's class!

Relive the awesomeness of everyone’s favorite martial arts- loving panda and the Furious Five in Kung Fu Panda and Kung Fu Panda 2. Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment will release the two films with new extras on Digital HD December 15 and Blu-rayTM and DVD January 5 with a bonus disc of new content.


In DreamWorks’ Kung Fu Panda, Jack Black is perfect as the voice of Po, a noodle- slurping dreamer who must embrace his true self – fuzzy flaws and all – in order to become the Dragon Warrior. With groundbreaking animation and high-kicking humor, the Oscar-nominated Kung Fu Panda is delightful entertainment for the whole family.


Black reprises his role as Po in Kung Fu Panda 2, the fiercely funny Academy Award- nominated sequel. In his biggest challenge since becoming the Dragon Warrior, Po must lead his friends and fellow kung fu masters, The Furious Five, on a mission of epic proportions to defeat his most threatening rival yet! 


The re-release of these films will include exciting new bonus features for the whole family to enjoy, including an all-new 22 minute animated adventure, “Secret of the Scroll,” and an exclusive sneak peek of DreamWorks Animation Kung Fu Panda 3.
