Kale and Ravioli Soup

So my friends and I did four Operation Christmas Child boxes a few weeks ago. And it was perfect.

I used Ariel paper, because obviously Disney princess wrapping paper is the greatest thing ever invented. And I am TOTALLY excited for the holidays now. Full swing. Christmas tree up, presents under the tree, Christmas music blaring, you name it.

Anyway, despite the warm weather, here’s some soup for you. What the heck, December? I mean, isn’t it supposed to be COLD? Not 60-70°F?? So, turn up your AC real high, close the blinds, and pretend it’s cold. Okay?

This soup is from the potluck my friends and I did during our Operation Christmas Child weekend. One person brought salad, one person brought Greek cornbread, and I made soup. And we talked about boys and life and ghosts and God all night and it was perfect.
