If you follow me anywhere on social media, you probably know that I am on a snow kick. I cannot stop thinking about snow, talking about snow, annoying my husband about snow. I neeeed it to snow. We got a little bit a couple weeks ago but it melted as soon as it hit the ground so it doesn’t count. We were supposed to get snow last night but ehh, I am disappointed.

Since I’ve been such a cold weather mood lately, I’ve been really into soup. I make soup every time it snows and I made this one in preparation of the (no) snow we got last night. And then I made another batch, with pasta, the next day because my husband wanted to take it for lunch this week. And then last night he informed me that he’s going to need another batch today or tomorrow.

So yeah, he likes it a little bit.
