A blizzard is coming apparently. And although the weathermen around here have been sucking wind when it comes to accurate forecasting lately.
I think I believe them this time.
All those radars and maps and overwrought explanations of doomsday approaching just seem too real.
So with that said, I made soup.
Because really, when the weather does anything but shine warm sun down on us, the only remedy is soup.
In any form.
And with any ingredients.
A big pot on the stove will fix all that ails and help us forget all that howls and pelts down rain and sleet and snow outside.
I found this recipe from Sophie Dahl at the BBC. It's very basic, but makes the house smell absolutely amazing. (I would absolutely buy a scented candle in "roasted garlic" should that ever be sold...) And you would swear there is cream in the soup (although there is none!) I would make this again and again. It is comforting to eat, not only because it is a smooth, creamy tomato soup, but because it is so simple to make.
