A story of good intentions (and soup).
Let me start by saying I LOVE soup. Any flavour, at any time of the day, in any season. Soup just makes things better.
It’s a hereditary thing. My mother LOVED soup, and it’s no lie to say that during my teenage years, there was either a pot on the stove, or a bowl in the fridge every single day during winter.
Fast forward, and it’s the same with me. I was talking with my sister a few weeks back, and the conversation turned to soup (as you do) and I said how I was going to try to make a different soup for each of the 12 weeks of winter. If you know Helen, you’ll know what an amazing cook she is, so of course she said she’d do it too.
Me being me, and loving a hashtag, thought well, let’s start a #wintersoupclub.
I really wanted to start on June 1 (which is where the good intentions come into it), but life got in the way, and I’ve had to wait until a long weekend to kick things off with this Roasted Cauliflower Soup.
So come and join us. Make a soup, snap a pic and use the hashtag in your Instagram post or stories (and feel free to tag me @annemaree.c so I can share)
No rules, no judgement – just soup.
