This is a re-post from a while ago…but I just made a big pot and boy was it good.
Green thumb. Green light. Green room. Greenback. Greenhorn. Green with envy. Green around the gills. Greener pastures.
Lean Green fighting machine. Oh wait a second, did I get that one wrong? 😏
No matter, because that is exactly what you will be if you eat more, yeah, you know what’s coming here: GREENS.
SouP SOUp SOup, fabulous SOUP!
It may not feel like it, as the sizzling summer temperatures outside belie the fact that it is indeed officially FALL; but by gawd if the autumnal equinox didn’t do its astronomical thing a few days ago (September 22, to be precise) and here we are!
This of course means it’s time for all of those good things we humans were bred to view as snuggly and comforting……like flannel shirts, pumpkin spice lattes (have you SEEN the new fall cups at Starbucks? KA-Yoot!), the smell of a fireplace, crunchy autumn leaves and the boots you get to finally wear again to stomp ’em.
Okay, sure, I like chicken soup well enough.
It’s sort of watery though, don’t you think? Kinda thin. Doesn’t seem to have much going for it, unless you like mealy overcooked chicken bits and a few soggy scraps of carrot. Maybe I just associate it with being sick and that’s clouding my judgement. Maybe I relied on too many cans of Campbell’s Chicken and Stars during my leaner years. Ug.
So do I LOVE chicken soup? . . . . meh, can’t say that I do;
This is a re-post from last March. But it was cold out. It was late. I was hungry. I made this soup…and now I need to remind you how good it is………
What’s a matter, baby pie? Not feeling too great today? Got yourself a wittle cold? Maybe a touch of the flu?
Feeling blue? Maybe a little green? (seeing red?) Maybe you’re just run down…
MAYBE you’ve been having too much fun lately. 😜 (I say we vote for that)
Whatever the reason, let’s not waste another inhalation of oxygen complaining about it. In under ten minutes, you can be sitting in front of a steaming, fragrant, body and soul replenishing bowl of THIS……
I know, I know…..black bean brownies last week and now this? You think there was a close out on black beans at my grocery store or what?
Well, yeah, I know it looks suspect but the truth of the matter is simply, holy goose bumps, is it ever cold out. So what do we do about it? We eat soup, THAT is what we do. At least that is what I do. And this is really just a bowl full of good stuff. Healthy, beautiful to look at, a snap to make, and as far as ingredients go….cheap and easy! And let’s face it…….I had an extra can of black beans on hand! Ha! So there. Busted. But in a good way. On a very cold winter day, it’s all about the soup.
