Friday Fun! (Soup Season)

Hello my lovely readers!  It’s alternating between a pleasant 40-something degrees and so fucking damn cold that you just want to curl up under your pile of blankets and stay there forever.  This clearly means that it is soup making season.

The great thing about soups is not only do they warm you up, but they also actually taste better when reheated than the first time around.  Plus when you make a huge pot, there’s enough for dinner, lunch the next day, and some leftover to freeze for a busy evening later in the month.  As such, I’ve been making soups non-stop yo.

I have a plethora of options for actual soup recipes, as opposed to what I did in previous winters which was dump boullion, veggies, and pasta or rice in water and call it good enough.  No, no.  Now I’m making such things as Thai Butternut Squash and Lime Soup or Kale Potato Soup or Root Veggies Red Lentil Dal.  It’s divine.  It’s awesome.  It’s healthy.  It’s one of the pluses to cold weather.  I mean, seriously, I can’t imagine downing that dal in 90 degree heat.  Just would not work.

Of course, when the soup doesn’t cut it to warm you up, gin always also helps.  (Yes, I know technically it thins your blood so you get colder, but you still *feel* warmer, and that’s the point, isn’t it?)

Happy weekends all!

    Thai Butternut Squash sounds good!

      Very good! A bit spicy. It’s actually better warmed up the next day than the day you make it.

    I’d love the recipe for the Root Veggies Red Lentil Dal

    Those sound fantastic! I wish I had a freezer big enough to keep a lot of soup good. As it is, I can make it on Sunday and it lasts for one next day, but after that I’m never sure.

      A small freezer is so sad! It’s the best way to preserve things for the semi-long-term. *sighs*
