I made a big batch of soup on Friday afternoon, I really needed a warm, comforting meal to soothe my soul. We have had a very trying week in my family and I find I just don’t have an appetite or interest in food right now. I know I need to eat, it is just too early for that, but I find soup is something I can always just eat a little of, whatever is going on around me.
I kept it simple, I just can’t focus on anything complicated right now. It is a simple vegetable soup with beans. I loaded the soup with onions, carrots, fennel, tomatoes, garlic, leeks, and celery. All the good stuff one needs to face the day. I used chicken stock, because it was what I had on hand, but it would be equally delicious with vegetable stock.
Go hug your loved ones a little tighter today, life is precious and oh so short.
