Football Saturdays

It is another saturday here in the South, which means Auburn football and food. I am excited to be at home.  I was able to plan our meals for the week, go to the market, cook lunch and workout by 1:00 pm. Now it is time to hunker down for some college football! Lunch was good, Winter Vegetable Soup. I found this recipe in the Atlanta Journal Constitution last year and loved it the first time I tried it. This soup is easy to make and FULL of flavor. Thanks AJC!
