And yes, I was so proud of myself that I took pictures along the way and posted it on Instagram as a compilation. Even though the pictures don't do it justice. It's a winter minestrone soup. It has yam (or sweet potato, still not sure of the difference), parsnip, turnip, butternut squash, carrots, red swiss chard, and I decided to put hot Italian sausage in it because YUM.

I'm not much of a cook, so it took me around 30 minutes to cut, peel, and chop up all the vegetables. I was dying by the end, haha.
