Awesome Winter Meal

For whatever reason when it has snowed this year it makes me want to make homemade bread. And for us, there's nothing like homemade bread and soup on a snow day. This is what we had on saturday when it snowed:
Homemade country white bread and ground turkey, white bean and spinach soup. It was really good :) (and healthy!) Below are the recipes for both

Italian White Bean, Spinach and Turkey Soup Recipe

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 pound ground turkey
4-5 garlic cloves, minced
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary or 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 (15.5 ounce) can cannellini beans or other white beans, rinsed and drained
4 cups (32 ounces) low-sodium chicken stock
12-14 ounces fresh spinach, chopped
Salt and pepper
1) In a medium stock pot, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add ground turkey, season with a dash of salt and pepper, break into small pieces and brown for 3-4 minutes. Drain excess fat, if necessary. Add garlic and onions and sauté for 4-5 minutes, until onions are soft.
2) Add cannellini beans, thyme, rosemary and chicken stock. Bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Mix in chopped spinach and simmer 5 more minutes. Adjust seasonings to taste.

(I used small white beans instead of cannellini beans)
