MMMMMMMMMM, it has been so clod & rainy here today ~ currently 39 degrees & windy ~UGHHHHHH!
While I did my house work I set a big pot of homemade chicken soup on my stove top & simmered it all day long.
First I boiled the chicken thighs and breasts with a bunch of spices. Once the chicken was cooked I de-boned (I let little Ms. Bailey have the skin :), she was very happy about that) diced some onions, chopped some carrots and celery and added it to the pot along with the chicken & a few bay leaves and let it simmer away. Once the veggies were all cooked I added some whole wheat penne and let that cook up.
Let me tell you just smelling that cooking away all day was good for the soul :) ~
so when Mr. P came back from his little hunting expedition we had steaming hot bowls of homemade soup, we split a grilled cheese & we each had a pumpkin spiced beer and boy oh boy was it ever good.....he's snoring away on the couch now!
A little bit after dinner I settled down in front of the fireplace to read & I had a nice glass of Port Wine, well this is a favorite fall/winter nighttime drink that I just love...it warms you all the way to your toes!
Since I hadn't had any since last winter I forgot how much Bailey loved it too, yup that's right Ms. B is a wine-o, LOL!!!!!
I gave her a bit over ice (maybe about 1/4/ of a cup) she lapped it up & she's snoring away too...it's going to be a nice quiet night!
Until tomorrow have a nice night be safe & God Bless!
Mary, Joseph and the BIRTH...
