Happy New Year! There is nothing more comforting on a cold winters day than a warm cup of homemade soup or the warmth and smell of oven roasted sweet potatoes. Why not start this new year with some simple fresh and healthy recipes?
Oven roasting fresh vegetables is a great winter alternative to grilling on the barbecue and using the oven helps warm up the house too! My homemade soup includes nice fresh vegetables, but it is also a great way to use up those leftovers from past meals as well. Any little bit of rice, vegetable, or even meat that is left over but not enough to use for another meal goes in a baggie and into the freezer. Then when I make my soup, out the baggies come and into the soup the leftovers go! We do NOT waste food and every soup is different!
Both recipes are simple, of course. I hope you did not expect anything complicated...well, because that's just not me!
As with all my recipes you can click on the recipes shown or use the button below them to download the pdf file and print one sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock paper. Then cut out each of the 4 x 6 inch recipe cards. They always come two recipes per sheet in an effort to not waste paper!

FYI: there are always two recipes because I do not want to waste paper!

Hi there! I'm Kathie, the author behind Creating A Simpler Life blog. I'm excited to share our longterm projects (and planning) toward building our future retirement homestead in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. In the meantime I will be sharing all the other little things we do that are part of creating our simpler life!
