Ladies and gentlemen, it’s soup season!
This time of year, there are few things I like better than enjoying a nice, big, piping hot bowl of soup.
I love the whole process: setting it down on the table, stirring the broth to cool it down, inhaling its seasoned goodness, getting my glasses steamed up, blowing on a spoonful to get a taste, and feeling it make its way to my warm and happy belly.
I love hearty stews and steamy broths, bread bowls and Saltine crackers, Progresso and Campbells. I love it all.
Best of all, soup is so easy to make. You can chop up some veggies, toss ‘em in a pot, add water and some seasonings, and let it simmer. An hour later, you have a batch of scrumptious soup that lasts the entire week.
This season, I hope to try my hand at corn chowder, potato leek soup, udon and arroz caldo, the Filipino porridge Mom used to make that made us instantly feel better.
