The last few weeks have been unbearably cold. The nights dip down below 0 degrees and the days barely reach 20. It’s the type of cold that pierces through even the thickest of your jackets.
It freezes your nostrils as soon as you step outside. That windproof gloves, fleece hats and chunky scarves can’t keep out. The kind of cold that makes for dinner the only option that makes sense.
You see, I’m a kind of girl. I will take a pureed soup over a chunky stew any day.
I don’t know if it’s the silky smooth texture that gets me, or if it’s simply the fact that this type of meal lends itself exceedingly well to dipping. From toasty sandwiches , , buttery scones or even savory muffins.
I simply adore dipping baked goods into soups like this. But we’ll save that for our next conversation. This time we’re focusing on the soup. This time we’re talking about a quick and healthy tomato bisque .
