Easy Tube skirt and easy dinner

Easiest tube skirt ever made:
measure waist and hips for width plus width you want at knees.
length is from waist to knees. 
cut and sew in elastic that fits your waist. 
Stretch knit fabric when sewing down waist so it doesn't rip when you put it on. 

                                                                       This is how I would style it for work.

Easiest Tortilla soup recipe ever!!
Add all these ingredients to a pot. med heat till chicken looks good.

Add a tbsp sour cream and some cheese, on top of your individual bowl, if you like. 
We always do.
