It has been weeks maybe MONTHS since everyone in our house was healthy. It’s one cold after flu after pink eye after bronchitis after the other. It seems ALL we’ve been eating is soup. Which is ok with me because I LOVE SOUP.
Like, I think about it and I think, I love soup! Could it be the perfect food?
When I’m up for it, I love to make a huge pot of copycat Olive Garden minestrone. I make this all the time. And mine is better than Olive Garden’s. But I haven’t really felt like chopping up all those veggies and stuff lately so we’ve been eating mostly canned.
My current favorite (and by favorite I mean I am kind of addicted): Amy’s Fire Roasted Southwestern Vegetable soup. It feels SO good on my throat. And is really so flavorful for a canned soup.
Last night I went out with some friends to Pikk’s Tavern, downtown Valpo and I couldn’t wait to find out what their soup of the day was.
I was seriously bummed when all they had was broccoli cheddar, gumbo, or seafood chowder. But I just couldn’t NOT get soup, so I figured I’d try the broccoli cheddar (their soup of the day.) It was WAY different than I expected. It was amazing. Pureed and spicy. And oh my gosh I need some right now.
So, back to the cans, I am worried I’m going to get burned out on my Amy’s Fire Roasted soup. Please let me know what your favorites are. I need to update my cupboards!
Do you like soup? What is your favorite you can buy at the store? Do you have a favorite recipe?
PLEASE SHARE. I eat soup for breakfast. Really.
