The only way to get through February is a nice hot bowl of soup and some homemade bread!
Put everything into a large soup pot and bring to a boil, put the lid on and turn down to simmer for 90 minutes. Add a splash of red wine or apple cider vinegar at the end. You can definitley mix this up, put in some greens, some mushrooms, a zuchinni. I like it because I almost always have all these ingredients in my kitchen and its quick to make!
