Tonight’s soup is one of our all-time favorites! It’s so easy and so, super delicious.  The pot roast recipe is a new one from my slow cooker cookbook, and while I wasn’t always a big fan of traditional pot roast growing up this one sounds like it could change my opinion.  The recipe linked here isn’t the same one I’m using (since I couldn’t find it online), but it’s pretty close except for the fact that mine is done in a slow cooker.

Finally, Saturday is the Henricksen Cookie Party, an annual holiday tradition that we’ve been doing for at least 5 years.  Christian’s family did it growing up and it was so much fun that we’ve adopted it as one of our own traditions…everyone brings freshly made cookies to eat and swap and I provide lots of savory snacks (cheese platter!) to balance us out.  Homemade spiked apple cider and Glögg (mulled wine) are also a mandatory ingredient to the fun…love the Holiday Season!
