Here is the before editing shot.
The frost was pretty on the window and these are a couple of the shots that I had to choose from .
While waiting for T to show up, I started making a vegetable soup. It was delicious for lunch-
I just sauteed: 3 minced garlic cloves, chopped onion, 3 stalks of celery and red pepper in about 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil. Once softened, I added 2 boxes of reduced chicken broth and diced carrots, zucchini and cauliflower. I didn't have any cans of diced tomatoes, and used a small can of tomato sauce and about .75 cup of homemade sauce along with 2 chopped up turkey meatballs that were left over. Let that boil and then simmer while adding about 2 tablespoons of soup mac. So good that I had another cup with 1/2 slice of homemade bread.
