You could eat this soup forever…

(Unless you are lactose intolerant.)

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?

    Sounds so good Caitlyn! We’ve had different varieties of pasta the last few days. Yesterday was baked farfalle (homemade bolognese, with red peppers and topped with jalapeno cheddar) which was pretty tasty!

      Mmm, sounds amazing! I can’t wait to have easier access to a lot of ingredients (at a much more affordable price!) when we move back. I’ll definitely try out more pasta recipes.
