My favorite time of year has arrived: soup season. There is something just so darn comforting about a hot bowl of soup in my hands during the winter time.
Soup: it’s the ultimate comfort food. When the nights are cold, the wind is howling, and the chill sinks deep into our bones it is soup that we crave. After a difficult day of being human, we long for the warmth of a hot cup of soup. When our noses are stuffy and our bodies ache, we reach for the version with chicken and noodles.
It restoreth the soul. And of course it is always best when our cups runneth over.
