Since the early morning I am running a fire on our fireplace.
Have to chop some wood soon, our typical work out during cold winter days (some sort of sports). Lucky we don't got that much snow yesterday. I cleared the street and the yard with a broom and was done in a few minutes only, but it is deep freezing outside. For my garden plants snow and milder temperatures would be much nicer. I guess I am going to loose some.

I cooked a bean soup for lunch:
Just with a few ingredients:
1 garlic sausage, diced
1 carrot, diced
2 celery stalks, diced
1 small can tomatoe chunks
1 onion, diced
1 garlic glove, minced
1 big can white small beans, rinsed
1 big tablespoon tomatoe paste
600 ml water
1 teaspoon smoked chilli powder,
1 teaspoon sugar
pinch pepper, oregano, thyme, cumin
Roast vegetables with the sausage dices in the sausage fat. Add tomatoe paste and sugar, roast a little and add everything else. Cook 30 minutes. Pretty perfect after wood chopping activities.Tastes better reheated.
