Making soup:

As the weather gets colder, my mind (and taste buds) turn to soup. During the winter months, all I ever seem to want to eat is soup. Oh, soup. Let's talk about how much I love you, just for a second:
  1. You fill the entire house with your delicious scent as you simmer on the stove for hours
  2. You make dinner easy: just throw random vegetables (sometimes ones that are a little questionable) into a pot and bam! Done.
  3. You warm me up like no other food can
  4. You keep me filled up with tasty and nutritious things like beans, carrots, potatoes, and celery, while keeping things light and low on calories
  5. You reheat better than almost any other food and therefore encourage leftovers for a week
  6. You are easy to bring along to work for a weekday lunch. Just pour into a jar and go
Needless to say, we eat a lot of soup. We like to make a big pot of soup on Sunday and some homemade rolls and eat on them all week long. So on a busy weekday evening, all we have to do is warm everything up and we've got an insanely delicious and filling meal. The soups we've been rocking lately are: split pea, potato, and black bean. But we're not partial. We are equal opportunity soup eaters.

P.S. It's election day! Go vote! It's your duty as an American citizen. And if you don't exercise your right to vote, you can't exercise your right to complain later (and we all know you will).
