It's a new day, it's the last day of the week and the weekend is just hours away...
It's been cold out... too darned cold out... let's celebrate the simple things today.
Let's celebrate warmth, and good homes and good food... let's celebrate being with our loved ones and some time to unwind and just slow down... Let's celebrate the New Year so far and let's celebrate all the goodness that is yet to come. Let's celebrate hope and possibility... and warm blankets and warm socks... and warm mugs of homemade soups, breads and lots of tea and coffee... good books, snuggling under covers and maybe even a little bubbly at the end of the day!

Wishing you all toasty warm and relaxing weekends!


Confetti celebration

hot cocoa

Barefoot Contessa's Winter Minestrone & Garlic Bruschetta.  This is an amazingly good soup!  I did not have the pancetta available to put in the soup, so I substituted a good thick smokey bacon, and thought it was fabulous.  I also made the crusty bread recipe that I found on Pinterest with this, and it was a great addition.  Easy and a fast hearty soup to make!  10 Stars!!!

Warm Socks Makes Everything Better


How will you celebrate the simple things this weekend?
