Tonight is the ultimate cozy night- the gentle sound of the rain outside, a warm fire glowing in the woodstove, being in pajamas and my favorite wooly slippers…. ahhh, feels good! I baske in the quiet of night. I love kicking back and relaxing after a productive day, feeling satisfied. Jeff and I sat slurping our dinner, listening to the fire crackle, holding our homemade soup in gigantically-sized mugs. I made a chicken bone broth soup with a free range chicken we bought from a local farm. I love bone broth soup, it is so nourishing and so rich in calcium. I added some kale, beets, carrots, yams, garlic, and some dried basil from the garden. Soups fit in perfectly with a cozy night. I felt so grateful to be eating such delicious, nutritious food.
Then for dessert I had made some carob almond cookies…. Jeff and I both took our first bite and looked at each other with wide eyes- we both agreed- this was the best batch of cookies I’ve ever made- make that the best cookies we’ve ever had! Making the best cookies we’ve ever had, that alone makes for a good day!
Now I am going to curl up and delve into a good book, my favorite way to end the day!
Goodnight, Sleep Tight, Don’t Let the Bed Bugs Bite,….. and Sweet Dreams!
