Dinner time has been my favorite part of the day this past week. I’ve been loving spending more time than usual trying out different recipes. I’ve never been an incredible chef and cooking has always been something I’ve tried to perfect (since only eating mac n cheese in college). One of my preferred things to cook during these confusing times has been any form of soup. It’s warm, it’s filling, it’s delicious and feeds the entire family. Something we all could use right about now. It’s the little things. Enjoy!
