Ah, soup. There’s really nothing more satisfying when you’re cold and need a meal. Even more satisfying, at least to me, is making it at home yourself…for pennies…in large quantities that last a handful of meals!
I’m big on soup. Can’t you tell? It’s super flexible:
carry it in a thermos hot and drink throughout the day
carry it in a mason jar cold and drink throughout the day
quick and easy to reheat on the stove top, one or two cups at a time
can be the base of other bigger meals, or an addition to a meal
can be topped with whatever you please to make it even more filling
It’s also damn yummy. Especially this one…
Saturday Afternoon Squash & Carrot Curry Soup
