Two Soups

I'm relishing January things, which for me means cleaning up and cleaning out, sitting by the fire, and making soups.  

I'm sharing two good ones today.

First, Budget Bytes' Zuppa Toscana. This was a big hit with the kids. My oldest even took the leftovers for school lunch. Look at all that gorgeous kale!

I also recommend the Pioneer Woman's veggie chili. My sister put me onto this one. I skip the corn flour - tried it, prefer without. A lot of chopping is required, so get ya a good podcast. 

Favorite toppings: goat cheese or sour cream, avocado, and cilantro. 

My kids didn't love this one as much. More for me! 


Another favorite January indulgence -- I LOVE a cold walk. Is there anything more invigorating?! We've all heard the expression, "There is no bad weather, only bad clothing." 

I have to give myself a pep talk every. single. time. But once I'm bundled up and out there...it's great. 

How do you spend your winters?


  1. I agree on the soup and cold walks! I read that Midwesterners say you hate winter unless you get out in it, and I have slowly realized that over the last few years and even a short walk outside can reset me (but I walk P to school daily, which is great).

  2. My mantra (it actually helps!) is, "I don't always want to, but I'm always glad I did." This is usually for doing yoga, but also for getting out of the house to move my body. For some reason, just acknowledging that "I don't wanna" and that's ok and I still can is motivating.
