Winter soups. Those two words belong together.
I’m a good ‘ol solid definition of “wimp” when it comes to the cold. And I’m not afraid to admit it.
I’m sure living in snow is lovely and romantic and fun to play in and all that…. but I much prefer to drive up to the snow and then LEAVE the snow behind afterwards. I’m not into all that scraping off windshield, digging out tires, shoveling off driveways stuff. I don’t even know if that makes sense??… are those even the things that you do?? I can’t be sure. My snow experience is VERY limited. Aside from a 6-year stint in Chicago, where I didn’t own a car, I have always lived in the Phoenix area and have no “living in snow” experience.
You know you’re a true Phoenix dweller when it’s only been ” really cold” for a couple of weeks and you’re wishing for warmer weather and flip flops already.
Yep. That’s me. You caught me. I confess!!
The funny thing is…. only a few months earlier I was wearing shorts and flip flops still and longing for the weather to cool down just enough so I’d have an excuse to throw on a sweater and a pair of boots and… dare I say it… a scarf?!!!
But warm, cozy clothing is just one of my two favorite things about Winter. The second???……………
Mmmmmmm. Give me it HOT and steamy!
Packed with meat and/or tasty veggies!
A flavorful broth!
Hearty bread for dunking. A MUST!
My family teases me because I have to heat up my soup in the microwave if it isn’t PIPING hot. I just do NOT eat soup unless it is good ‘n’ hot. Which means I pretty much only eat it in the Winter. Ain’t nobody in the mood for hot soup when it’s 110 degrees outside. Bleh.
But in Winter?? LOVE IT!! Hooray for Winter Soups!!
