Simple. A simple soup is what is cooking in my little kitchen today. White beans plumped up from their overnight bath, now simmering away in chicken broth stock. Once the beans are al dente, they will be joined by a goodly amount of diced sweet yellow and white onions that have been softened from a quick saute in butter. Some bright orange carrots chunked up into irregular pieces will slip into the pot along with a few slices of light green celery. And then this whole hot pot will be lovingly seasoned with sea salt and a goodly dose of coarsely ground black pepper. Yes, a simple soup for a quiet day here in the woods.

My humble abode is fragranced with savory tones. Calming and soon to be nourishing for body, psyche, and soul. Nothing if not divine.
