Sometimes we just need a little comfort…

Food has always been a form of comfort to me. Not in the unhealthy way. But I’ve always loved cooking. And sometimes a certain type of food is just what a girl needs to feel better.

Today I’m making soup. Soup is one of those dishes that is easy to make. There is no need for a recipe. Just start with a big pot and a handful of your favourite ingredients. That’s all it takes.

I have a big pot of soup filled with beans, tomatoes, potatoes and other assorted vegetables simmering away. The apartment smells amazing. And already, I can feel my appetite returning.

I’ve been feeling a little under the weather the last couple of days (which just happen to be days off this week). As soon as I slow down and take a minute I relax, that’s when I tend to get sick.

And so, I turn to a big hearty pot of soup, a fuzzy blanket and my favourite Monday night television. Time to rest up. 🙂

    • Thank you! It was great – I used a little too many red pepper flakes, so it had a little more heat than I was expecting, but it was hearty, filling, and wonderful 🙂
