I've been in the kitchen!

Sunday was my moms Birthday! I cooked dinner for the occasion. I made vegetable soup, which simmered in the crock-pot all day long. Potatoes, carrots, green beans, celery, onion, crushed tomatoes, chickpeas, spicy and regular V8, bay leaves, garlic, salt and pepper. I also added slices of smoke sausage the last hour or so, 'cause I know my momma likes it!

I kind of wish I would have put the soup in the bowls before taking this picture, but here is the spread! Seriously, you can't go wrong with mismatching dishes, plastic cups and a cheesy tablecloth.
