I’m not a huge seasonal eater in terms of dishes. Fruits and veggies, totally, but I could eat super hearty savory comfort dishes mid summer and have no problem with light salads in the middle of the winter. The only thing I can’t do is soup during the hot days of July and August. It’s just too much! That’s why I am thrilled there is finally a nip in the air again and I can start eating big bowls of warmth. I’m not gonna promise an epic run of Soup Mondays again this year, but I will promise tons of creative soup ideas for the next 9 or so months! Today’s soup is filled with everything that I happened to be craving a few days ago. I am also short a limb for a few weeks due to a surgery, so I wanted to make this one nice and easy so some friends could do the bulk of the work on a Sunday afternoon without missing out on much needed hang-out time.
