Food Adventures: Chicken Soup for the Soul (no, not the book)

What would make a snow day more perfect than ending it with home-made, heart warming chicken noodle soup and wrapping up in a comfy, over-sized chunky knit? Well tonight, I couldn't think of anything better- yes, even for the soul :)

Replace traditional noodles with mini cheese stuffed ravioli for a delicious twist!

Chicken Apple Sausage, Parmigiano Reggiano, Fresh Parsley, and Thyme...

And Voila! Herb packed mini meatballs.

The Holy Trinity of cooking- starting off with Mirepoix!

Garnish with fresh parsley and a sprinkle of cheese- so delish!!

Mila shows us how it's done in a chunky knit. I can't say I looked quite like this slurping down my soup.

I woke up early this morning delighted to be able to trudge through the first snow of the year :) I've always found snow to be somewhat nostalgic- whether it's getting giddy like a child at the sight of the first flake or if it's yearning to race out your back door (which, for me these days, would be the equivalent of running off my 3rd plus story balcony) to find that perfect hill for a day of sledding! Although I will not be sledding through the streets of uptown, I will be enjoying this beautiful snow-covered Sunday and the childhood memories it conjures up!

Slipped on my favorite trapeze coat and was out the door! Good morning darlings!

Sunday treat- Vanilla Soy Latte :)

Spring peaking out!
