over the weekend...

.....we found out when you add a few baby beets to your winter veggie soup (beets + butternut squash+potatoes +turnips +carrots +collard greens + tomatoes+ homemade chicken stock + white beans+onion+LOTS of garlic + favorite herbs in any combo-rosemary, thyme, oregano, parsley, basil, anything goes).....it turns your soup purpley pink and it becomes a new kid favorite. 

We ate (brownie sunday) and then drank (hot chocolate, seriously, hot, melted chocolate) ourselves silly at Hatch Family Chocolates. 

We attempted to run, and almost died because of this terrible air....come on Utah, this is gross. 

We got caught up on our favorite shows....thank goodness Leslie Knope is back in my life.

will be trying out said soup for the little ones (who are not so little...they're getting taller than me.) this week. I've never had fresh beets. My mom would force the canned ones on us when I was growing up. Ew. Let me try your recipe, I may have a new appreciation for that dreaded veggie.
Cheers!

2. just recently fell in love with miss Leslie Knopp, actually more so on the boy who's falling for her and Ann Perkins. but still, great show.

That soup smelled soo delicious. I seriously drove away thinking, "what is she putting in her soup to make it smell THAT good?" I thought LOTS of garlic might have had something to do with it. :)
Leslie Knope is our friend, too. And we love Tom. Also, have you watched the Office lately? It's pretty funny again.

I always love your photos. That soup sounds so so good--and I don't even like beets!

So glad you had a good weekend.

Curious to know how Utah's air is so bad.

The question is...milk or dark hot chocolate? Once you go dark you'll never go back. And, YES. Thank GOODNESS for Leslie Knope. Cannot get enough.
