Green City Garden Girl: Soup Season: Why I Love Soup!

At last! It's here—a logical reason to make soup as many times as I want in any given week! My favorite time of year is right now: the colors, the falling leaves, pumpkins and spiced drinks. It's the precursor to the festive, holiday season, but—more importantly—it's soup season.

Let me make myself clear—I really like soup. I think it goes without saying (but I'll say it anyway) the list is endless when it comes to soup and what you can do with it. We eat it all year around, but it's this time of year when it's extra cozy and hip to make it. The only soup I don't like is cold soup. Maybe I'm not sophisticated enough, but I can't get into cold soup. Soup should be hot, and an immediate aversion occurs when this cold option hits my stomach. But the hot stuff—now that's where it's at.
