Pancetta and Winter Vegetable Soup | Fabtastic Eats I have a confession…I already decorated for Christmas. Like, I got home last Monday night, and began decorating on Tuesday…I even started listening to Christmas music. Not in the way that Im going to be driving my husband crazy with it in a few short weeks, but you know, just an hour here, and hour there. The only thing missing is the tree, and ONLY because they don’t start selling them around here until November 25th.

Pancetta and Winter Vegetable Soup | Fabtastic Eats In the past I’ve always scoffed when people decorated before Thanksgiving, like they’re rushing the holidays or something, but that’s obviously not how I feel. For me, I started early in an attempt to prolong the holidays. They go so quickly as it is, so I want to enjoy it for as long as possible. Even if people are telling me it’s to early for even an eggnog latte. 😉 I don’t think so!

Pancetta and Winter Vegetable Soup | Fabtastic Eats Plus with this cold front around here, it feels like we’re in the dead of winter, so soups and warm, comforting foods have been plenty. And this soup is just that, heart (& body) warming right down to your toes. The addition of cinnamon is a game changer, and it brings out so much flavor in the squash. Paired with the salty pancetta, it’s a match made in heaven.

This vegetable soup is so  quick and easy to throw together after a few minutes of chopping, making it a great weeknight meal, or a cozy Sunday afternoon one. Enjoy!
