I’ve made this soup twice already and it is so easy and quick to make for a weeknight dinner. I frequently buy turkey kielbasa, but if I were to just feature that with sides, I would have to buy two packages to fill my family up. So I came up with this soup to make enough for everyone and I might have leftovers for lunch – here is what you will need

Great soup to feed a big family and inexpensive to make too!


  • 1 package turkey kielbasa
  • 4 potatoes, cut into chunks
  • 5 carrots
  • 1/4 onion, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano


  1. Cut up the turkey kielbasa and place that in a big soup pot. Start to brown it in the pan on medium heat (a few minutes).
  2. Next add the chicken broth and skim milk, scraping any browned bits on the bottom of the pot.
  3. Add the chopped veggies and cook on low/med for about 20 minutes until the vegetables are done

So I told you about my Koo-Dohz weight loss motivator bracelet and I’m counting the Koo-Dohz I am giving myself to keep on my weight loss plan – Here is what I did today:

The first one is MAJOR!! No girl scout cookies at work! And it was my favorite peanut butter patties!

Leftovers from a luncheon, I work in an office that has 2 luncheons every week, and even if I don’t have to go to one, there is ALWAYS food leftover. Today it was chips, pop AND brownies and I had none of it!

I walked to and from work today – almost 4 miles.

I was taken out to lunch today by one of our reps and I chose a stir fry place so I could pick lots of veggies and stay on my plan.

I made cookies for the kids lunches tonight and didn’t have any.

Ate an apple while making dinner so I wouldn’t snack on chips/crackers.

And I’ve been doing this workout this week:

daily work out plan

I thought “100 jumping jacks isn’t hard!” Ummm.. I could only do 40 in a row, then I had to take a break and then I could only do 20 more at a time. These workouts don’t take that long, but they are hard!

And I big shout out to my twin sister – she had to put her dog Ed to sleep today – I talked to her tonight on the phone and I think it’s going to be a little adjustment not to have him around and when he was younger – she loved taking him for walks on the trails. Sorry for your loss Biz!

R.I.P. Ed!
