Yesterday we came home from a post-school sled and ate this soup for dinner. It was so warm, comforting and truly delicious. We've all declared it a new favourite, and I'm so thankful there was enough left over for us to enjoy for today's lunch.
We're eating soup two or three nights a week right now so I'm always looking for new ideas. Tell me, what soups are you making right now?
Have a great day!
