Soup has been on the menu this week here in Phoenix — a long, hot summer came to a close, and the heat seemed to linger right on past Thanksgiving, into the first week of December. Don’t get me wrong.. I love the heat, but after 9 months of pure sun, sometimes a girl wants a really cold day, some snow, and a change of scenery.
I know snow is not going to be in the forecast, but the weather did manage to dip down this week – the nights have been rather cold (compared to what we usually have) and my husband tells me I’m crazy… Crazy for opening the windows at night to sleep in the low temps. I’m that oddball who used to wear flip-flops and shorts in the middle of winter up north, while he is the type of person to throw on a jacket, mittens, and that when it dips under 80 degrees.
Funny, I know – but it’s true!
Even the kids asked for seconds, and our five-year-old wanted to know if I would make him another batch the next day because “it is the best soup EVER.”
