Dave called it a Christmas miracle that I was cooking. We're leaving town for a week and had plans to eat with his family, so the fridge is empty. But Simone has a high fever, we're all under the weather, and Christmas plans were cancelled. And all the stores are closed.
I dredged together a potato soup using scraps and my Grandma Jo's West Virginia recipe (she's turning 90 next week and we're planning on celebrating with her).
I also made these muffins using baby carrots that would've gone to waste. Simone ate three after initially throwing one on the ground. They taste better than they look.

Here's to resourcefulness, family, health, and a happy new year!
