Tortilla Soup

It snowed the other day. It . . . snowed! So obviously, winter is around the corner, and this momma is feeling a little bittersweet.

I love the holiday season, the candles, the cuddling, the blankets, the sweaters. I love the food, and the soups, the music, and the sweet smell of a fire burning in the background. I love getting together with family and friends, and I just love cooking and entertaining. That's what winter is for me, food, and friends with family, light music playing, laughter and jokes, but mainly food.

I love stews and soups, breads and warm drinks. I set my table all pretty, make my house smell real good, and invite the people I love to come by. I love the look on peoples' face, when they bite into some delicious homemade bread. The way they smile at the sip of a soul warming soup. I love the laughter that happens around a flower arrangement covered table. Something about the whole thing just melts my heart.

I have heard about good food being the way to a man's heart, but I believe it's great company and fun that is the way to mine. Having our son at the table with us for such events, injecting our conversations with his coos every so randomly, seriously that much more delicious. His laughter along with ours is like chocolate icing on my cake. He really just makes everything thattt much better. Heavenlyyy. (Yes, I am one of those girls, who adds extra letters to a word to help exaggerate. Sue me.)

Oh how fun it is to play . . . with my bare gum little son.
