It's hard to believe that it's almost Thanksgiving. I'm doing my best to empty out our fridge because we leave for South Dakota in just a couple of days.
Tonight, I made my favorite kale/swiss chard soup which used up carrots, swiss chard, kale and sweet potatoes. I also threw in celery, which isn't called for and wasn't great in the soup, but I wanted to use the last of it.
I love making soup this time of year, when it's cold and windy out. I listened to Christmas music while I was cooking tonight. I know some people think it's too early, but I love it :)
Sunday nights are typically depressing, but a 2-day work week is helping my mood considerably this evening. The only part I don't like about our upcoming trip is leaving the boys for 5 days, but their favorite pet sitter will be at our house, so I know they'll be in good hands.
