It’s no secret I have a sort of love affair with soups, and all things soup related, and after a positive response to my summer soups post I’m back with more, but this time its all about fall <3
“And all at once the summer collapsed into fall - Oscar Wilde”
Fall really is a wonderful time of year, besides the obvious; comfy clothes, fuzzy boots, scarfs and tea. Fall brings with it a plethora of seasonal veggies and the cool weather helps to inspire the cooking vibes - and after avoiding the stove all summer, its about time!
When it comes to cooking soup anytime of year, but especially leading into the fall and winter months ALWAYS DO A DOUBLE BATCH, seriously though I can’t stress enough the benefits of making extra soup and then freezing it is small and large portions for later. Lets be real for a moment, even though winter (for most of us) means spending more time indoors, it doesn’t mean we are any less busy! Having individual and family sized portions of soup on hand is such a great time saver for lunch and dinner and it’s easy enough that the family can heat it up themselves (wooot, one less thing mom has to do!).
