I haven’t had much time to make lovely things lately in the artsy realm, but a girl’s gotta eat, right? So, in lieu of an artsy post, I give you a post about soup.
Every week I make a meal plan, and that helps us stay organized with our dinners and lunches. (So glad I started doing that years ago!) On today’s menu: Cream Cheese Chicken and Vegetable Soup, aka Glorious Goodness.
As you can see, I had to stop mid-bite to snap a photo. You might also notice a little piece of buttered bread to the left–a perfect vehicle for scooping every last lick of soup from the bowl. Onion, garlic, carrots, potatoes, chicken… *sighs* I first discovered the recipe a couple years ago, and loved it so much that when we came home to visit the Christmas before last, I insisted on making a pot to bring over to my grandparents’ house for a late lunch. Now when I eat it I remember snowy days in Michigan, with the warmth of family and good soup filling me up, no matter the cold outside. I imagine my grandparents’ house “up north,” and so many memories come back. I guess that’s what happens when you can’t go somewhere often, but when you do there is a memorable meal.

If you’d like to give the recipe a go–which you should, you can find it here.
Have you made any stand-out meals this week?
