Homemade Carrot Soup!

Saturday, January 18, 2014

The only thing better than a cup of tea, is using the tea cup as a bowl for homemade carrot soup. Fact.

We've been on a soup kick at my house lately. From lentil soup, potato soup, leek soup, and tomato soup, the amount of soup I've consumed in 2014 is at an all time high.

What have I learned from the amount of soup I've had in this new year? Homemade soup is one of the greatest things this world has to offer.

If you're like me and you sometimes find it hard to get enthused about vegetables, carrot soup is like drinking all the vegetables you need. And it tastes good. And it has greek yogurt in it. (Greek yogurt is always a good idea.)
