Weather: 21 degrees, frosty
What I’m listening to: the rumble of a diesel engine
Recently, an email popped up in my inbox from a reader who was raving about an old recipe from my first six weeks of blogging back in 2011 that I hadn’t thought about in a very long time. Gasp. The photos. <Maya buries head in her hands>. We’ve come a very long way folks. A very long way indeed.
Fresh snowfall was on the ground and I had been desperately craving soup while simultaneously searching for what recipe I might feature for my newspaper deadline. This email from a reader inspired me to resurrect this old recipe. It was perfect – seasonal and cozy and so delicious… and desperately in need of a makeover in the photo department.
The next week after the recipe ran in the newspaper, I received texts and emails about this soup, everyone delighted. Now I’m feeling inspired to revamp more of my old favorites. Thanks for the inspiration and encouragement, readers. You’re kind of amazing.
Psst… this would be great with leftover Thanksgiving turkey (I’ve also done it with rotisserie chicken).
