Tea and Making Soup

My mama, sister and brother came to my house this afternoon. Sissy has piano lessons with my man's sister Ana (here in town), so my brother stayed and visited during the lesson...we chatted about all of life!...and then Mama and sissy came back and we had tea. Uummm. Black tea with milk and sugar. In pretty teacups. The woodstove was warm to drink tea by on this cold day (-14 this morning!)...and when we were done with our tea, Mama helped me make supper. She created her own recipe for a most delicious creamy potato, sausage and mushroom soup with carmelized onion, garlic, and bacon this week and brought some of the ingredients so she could show me how she makes it and so my man and I could have it for supper. It looks, smells, and tastes so delicious. Thank you Motherdy!

Can I come for supper?! :) I really love your photos, Kate - you have a very creative eye. Keep up the good work. Any chance that soup recipe is for public consumption? I'd LOVE to try it.
Love you all so very much...
