There is nothing more comforting than a giant bowl of homemade soup. Tonight I am cozying up with one of my favorites, Hearty Pumpkin Soup. It’s the ultimate satisfying dinner during these chilly fall nights. I topped it with a swirl of cream, crunchy pumpkin seeds and fresh herbs. What is your favorite soup this time of year?
One reason I love soup for dinner is because after a long day at work it’s ridiculously easy to heat up a bowl of soup and make a side salad to go with it. Is it just me or are you in a funk ever since the time changed? I can’t stand it being dark at 5:30 PM. I feel like I am so much less productive and all I want to do is curl up on my sofa with a warm bowl of soup and Chloe, my maltese. On Sunday, I’ll make a giant pot of soup (sometimes I’ll double the recipe and freeze it) and I just re-heat it throughout the week. Incase you didn’t know soups freeze beautifully and it’s a handy thing to have in your freezer when you’re having one of those “what’s for dinner” moments.
