Soup and crusty breads

a crusty loaf
with a pot of homemade soup
makes for a perfect early Sunday evening meal
YUM! (and healthy too!)

Of course, I topped this off with a small cup of eggnog. I think I'll make some more cookies later this week for dessert. Leftover soup and cookies make me smile!
