Easy Vegetable Soup!

Here it is.....delicious Autumn!

Who could not be inspired by a daily walk through the color-dappled woods? Don't you love hearing the geese overhead, as they wing their way south? There begins to be sightings of woodsmoke in the wind and the leaves turning their golden colors and drift from the trees.

The Heart of Autumn Must Have Broken Here,
And Poured it's
Treasure Out Upon the Leaves
~Charlotte Fiske Bates

Catherine was the last one to wake up on Sunday morning. She's a girl after my own heart....first to bed and the first to rise! As she savored a hot cup of her morning Joe in the kitchen, we talked about how the Fall season is our most favorite. Cool, cloudy, rainy days...bread baking in the oven and simmering soups on the stove....it is MOST delicious, isn't it? All of it...the sights and smells, the feeling of comfort that it brings to your soul.....oh yes....it is our gift from God my darlings, for certain!

Let's use our imagination in our kitchen. Light the candles and get cozy.

This is one of my favorite vegetable soups to create so easily and so quickly. It is so flavorful and quick to prepare on your busy weeknights. One of my dear friends from Flora, Mississippi prepared this soup and shared her recipe with me years ago.....it's a keeper!!
