December has been filled with food, family and a snow-less warm Wisconsin December. Here a just a few random photos from the month.
Above is a veggie-potato soup I put together for a quick dinner. Had lots of leftovers from a veggie tray. It's a great way to use up those last handfuls of broccoli, cauliflower and carrots. I sauteed them with onions and a little garlic, added chicken broth and some red pepper flakes, added some raw potato, cooked, pureed and it was yummy.
Teiko visiting at Grandma's house. He's watching and waiting for the pizza flavored doggy treats we had picked up at Bad Dog Frida's on Atwood Avenue - great pet store with awesome toys and treats for dogs and humans!
Finally have the fireplace area nice and cozy with the new leather chairs, bookshelves, a Persian rug picked up at the Maple Bluff Antique Mall for a song, a mantle of sorts to camouflage the fake stone wall and delivered firewood that is actually dry and burns great - from Green Thumb Farms in Sauk City.
That's the whirlwind that was my December. How was yours?
