Here we are starting a new week- and it's getting closer and closer to Christmas. We awoke to a misty cold day, which to us is great! We get so much hot weather, that this is a wonderful break from the norm. Plus it helps with the "Christmas" mood. It also lends itself to having something hot and nutritious. I made this soup using Anna's recipe, but instead of Swiss chard, I used kale and also added mushrooms. It really hits the spot when it's cold outside and you really, really, don't want to turn on the heater. I so enjoy just wearing comfy socks and an extra layering of clothes. I believe this is a time for economizing, and every little thing we can do towards that end is a good thing. Feeling a little cold won't hurt me, certainly won't kill me, so why not try and save a little money on the fuel bill?
Cold weather to me is also a good time for watching a good movie. After finishing my post, I think I'll pop this in the player. The 1995 version of "Pride and Prejudice" is my favorite movie, which is sold as a set of 3 discs. That and a good cuppa Earl Grey Cream will really put me in a British tea sipping and jolly good mood!
