I wore my fall jacket for the first time on Sunday. It was definitely a sad moment, as I'm reluctant to let go of the summer season. In fact, I've been moaning about the end of summer and the onset of autumn for several days (maybe a week or two?), and realized I need to counteract that negativity.
So I made some soup.
If there is one thing I love about pre-winter (my new name for fall), it is soup. Soup and stews. I started the season with my all-time favourite Yam & Peanut soup. It's delicious, hearty, and simple. This morning, I walked to work with a lunch-sized serving in my tote bag, and started dreaming about the other soups I'd like to make:
- Potato & Leek
- Chicken & (anything)
- Thai Tom Yum
- Curried Parsnip
- Spinach and Tortellini
- Spicy Squash with Apple (or pear)
- Southwestern Stew
- Corn Chowder
I love soups. And I would love to bring your favourite recipes into my kitchen. In exchange, I will gladly share recipes for any of the above!
What's your favourite soup or stew?
Soups I am not particularly interested in include: miso, mushroom, lentil, carrot. I have a strong aversion to seaweed, a medium aversion to the texture of mushrooms, I am never happy with my attempts at cooking lentils, and experience constant disappointment with carrot-based soups at home and out-and-about.
