Winter has officially arrived. As I write, gentle rain is falling and it feels good to be inside all cozy in my office sipping on my morning coffee.
Winter in Franklin, TN is a time of reflection and hunkering down. Sometimes you don’t see your neighbors for weeks at a time, which is still a little odd for me.
Like I said last week, January is pretty quiet around here, but since there’s a chance of snow this week – can I hear a YAY for snow, I think it’s the perfect time to light a fire…put on some music and make some soup.
My pal Traci over at The Healthy Southerner is cooking up a storm and sharing the yummiest healthy recipes full of flavor and good stuff.
Maybe you’ve heard of Italian Wedding Soup. It’s a favorite in my house especially since I’m married to an Italian, but Traci’s Tennessee Wedding Soup is well…delicious. Recipe here.
Christmas is a good time to send your cholesterol soaring, so I try and make a lot of hearty vegetarian dishes in January.
I’m making this heart healthy Carrot Ginger Soup from Spinach Tiger this weekend.
Get the recipe here.
If you want to boost your immune system during flu season, this 30-minute Health Soup will help a lot. It’s packed full of the best immune boosting veggies.
My family loves a hearty Boeuf Bourguignon (Beef Burgundy) served with a crusty French baguette (I don’t make bread!) and a green salad with a mustard vinaigrette. It’s our perfect Sunday night winter dinner.
I’ve tested a lot of recipes and this one is my favorite. Recipe here.
I’m getting really excited about the arrival of Sprouts Farmer’s Market. I hear rumor that it’s opening in March. It’s going to be located at 1010 Murfressboro Road in the old Stein Mart.
Sprouts Farmer’s Market is big in Southern California and I promise you, they create a terrific experience. May I just say that I’m praying for good lettuce!
It’s their first store in the Nashville area and it’s opening in Franklin! Be still my heart!
And on a totally different subject…would you like to change or improve your current make-up and get ready for spring? I love make-up and I love having my make-up professionally done.
On January 22, the Lancome National Makeup Artist is going to be at the Lancome Counter at Belk in Coolsprings Galleria. Belk has just undergone a major remodel and this would be a great time to see the store and get a new “look.”
You need to make a reservation. Call the Lancome Counter at 615.771.3200 ext. 268 and they’ll take care of you.
Have a great weekend and week and keep warm.
