We woke up this morning to light rain. YAY! I was sooo happy to see the rain and feel the chill outside when we went to the park. It is fall afterall, and this is how it's supposed to be!
As luck would have it, I began making a huge stock pot of soup yesterday. The cold, rainy weather was the perfect incentive to finish it off this afternoon. I had the soup on our menu for later this week, but Kevin decided that the house smells too good, and he wants the soup for dinner tonight. I didn't put up much of a fuss ;o)
I really think that a nice, hot bowl of soup on a cold, gray, rainy day has got to be the ultimate comfort food. It warms the house as well as the soul (not to mention the tummy!), and nourishes you in a way that few things can. It's filled with delicious vegetables, tender meat and lots of love. Oh, and some barley, too!
Very shortly, we'll be sitting down to steaming bowls of beef barley soup and warm asiago cheese bread. Mmmmm. What's cooking at your house?
