the first real snow + soup + oatmeal cookies + tea

Loves the snow.

A lot of tea was drank throughout the day. This is a pot of Jasmine Rose from The Tea Shop of Woodstock.


*used all organic 

5-10 cloves of garlic...I really love garlic
2 large yellow onions
Olive Oil
5 carrots
3 large sweet potatoes
4 apples, of your choice...I just used what was in the house which was 2 granny smith & 2 gala
1/2 cup white wine
3 tea kettles full of boiling water
3 heaping tablespoons of organic chicken base (vegetable base will work too) I use this base which I love & is good for a wide range of things
Pepper, to taste
Chipotle Powder, to taste...I used about 1 teaspoon
No-Salt Seasoning, to taste...I use this, which I just discovered at Costco & use for a wide range of things as well


Peel & chop all the veggies.
In a large pot saute pressed garlic with onions in a little bit of olive oil until golden
Add the white wine & let it reduce off before adding anything else
Begin to boil a full tea kettle of water.
Next add the carrots & continue to cook
Once the tea kettle water boils add it to the pot. then refill it & boil again
Add in the 3 heaping tablespoons of the chicken base
Upon adding the next kettle full of boiling water add the sweet potatoes & apples
Boil one last kettle of water
Add seasonings to taste
Once the last kettle of boiling water is added & the soup has been seasoned to your liking let it simmer until all the ingredients are soft...about 1/2 hour - 1 hour
Remove the pot from the heat & then use an immersion blender (like this) to blend the soup into a smooth consistency


Oatmeal Cookies
*I used this recipe here, just with organic ingredients 

If you enjoy crispy cookies these are amazing, I've made them again since because they were devoured in my house so quickly.

It was a wonderful day :)
