Two things i’m loving about today: this Vegetable Soup & the Cold Temps outside.
Texas doesn’t get cold very often, so when it does, I soak up every moment! I love getting cozy with a big bowl of soup and turning on a good flick.
This Pot of Vegetable soup is so incredibly easy, hearty, and delicious. I could easily eat 4 bowls of it in one sitting, but that mighttttt be veggie overload.
I’m off work today all cozied up at home with my sweet cuddly pup & a big pot of yummy soup on the stove. That’s an ideal winter day if you ask me. This soup can be thrown together ahead of time, and you can just let it simmer on the stove for a few hours or re-heat when you’re ready to eat. I prefer my vegetable soup be served with saltines, but of course serve it with whatever your heart desires.
Stay warm out there, friends! And enjoy this delicious soup!!!
