For those of us who are lucky enough to experience seasons – and are currently in the Northern hemisphere – are probably starting to feel a little chill in the air. Things seem less loose and a bit more exciting. And for many people, it’s the start of something special: Soup Season.
While cultured folks know that soup season is every season (have you ever had cold borscht? ::chef’s kiss::), we understand that having a warm and savory liquid running through your body starts sounding real good when it gets nippy out. The best part about the soothing bowls of liquid gold is that there are so many to choose from. Potato leek soup. Chicken noodle soup. Italian soups like minestrone or pasta e fagioli (Fazool if you’re nasty). Creamy soups. Chunky soups and chowders. Diet soups. Then there are silky and beautiful vegetable purees, begging for crunchy garnishes or spicy oils. Clearly I’m Team Soup, but there are more of us. And these memes celebrate that which we love: brothy bowls of tummy-warming goodness.
