i *lurve* soup. it's one of my favorite things ever. however, i am the type of person who can only eat soup when it is fall/winter. eating soup in the heat of summer just doesn't feel right to me. but on a day where the high is 50 degrees and it has been gray all day...now that is the most perfect day for soup.
a few weeks ago, it was that type of day. and so i gathered my ingredients and set out to make broccoli cheddar and potato soup. and oh it turned out so good.
