A few days ago, we decided to start a half-bathroom renovation. No, our kitchen is not done. We have a few more things to finish before I can officially call it done, and part of that involves us waiting for the pendant kit for our DIY light fixture to come in. So, in the meantime, we decided to completely gut our downstairs bathroom and redo it.
After having serious déjà vu while ripping up flooring, finding water damage (which we were somewhat expecting) and pulling up staples, all I wanted was a big bowl of comfort food. Instead, we had stovetop popcorn and whiskey sours. Even this food blogger doesn’t feel like cooking sometimes.
Had we planned better, I would’ve saved some of this soup from last week so that we could’ve enjoyed it for dinner during the bathroom renovation. If I’m being realistic, though, it would have been hard to save because I wanted to eat the leftovers for lunch every single day (and I did).
This soup is our current favorite winter meal. I find this time of year uninspiring in the food department, and I crave the kind of freshness that’s hard to come by in February. Thankfully, this soup has a healthy serving of greens, which quenches my desire for something super fresh. It’s hearty, comforting and just the thing we need to get through another
renovation cold weather snap.
