a lovely mushroom soup & a dreamy afternoon. {grain-free & vegan}




These pictures, right? So dreamy, so happy. You would never guess these dogs just came back from their annual vet appointment (shots included). Today was pretty darn chilly, making it a perfect day for a lovely earthy soup. This humble, yet flavorful soup takes about a half hour & would be perfect for dinner with a loaf of bread from the bakery.
