Tuesday began as a gray day with light snow. I boiled a couple of soup bones Monday, so before I turned out the horses I started a pot of vegetable beef barley soup for lunch. The sun came out in the meantime, but the soup was still a wonderful warming meal on a winter day.
After lunch I made a batch of cookies. The savory smell of soup gave way to the delightfully sweet smell of sugar and chocolate.
An afternoon nosh of cookies accompanying a nice cup of tea. I feel absolutely spoiled!
I have to give credit where it is due. The recipe for these fantastic cookies came from MAY ALL SEASONS BE SWEET TO THEE
