Snow and Soup

(By Aubree)


As a lot of you know, we had our first snow storm of the season! I don't necessary love or hate snow, but there's just something about the first snowfall that is just so exciting. This is what we woke up to on Sunday morning. These pictures were taken at about 12:30, so a little bit had melted, but we still have a little bit on the ground today.


And it just so happened that we were planning on making garbanzo soup. Every year, we get together with Jeff's Basque missionary friends and their wives. As part of the yearly get-together, we make a big Spanish meal, which always includes a big pot of garbanzo soup. Because we didn't get together this year, we haven't had our yearly "fix" of garbanzo soup, so we decided to make our own. The main ingredients are Spanish chorizo, garbonzo beans, and potatoes. It was delicious, and it just happened to be perfect for our snow day.

Thanks Brad for the recipe! It just wasn't the same without you guys! You know who you are. There's always next year.

Your house is really cute! And warm soup sounds great. Doesn't snow here, but it's been cold and windy all weekend.
