Cooler days, and longer evenings call for fuzzy slippers and warm soup, like this Creamy Turkey Soup with Sage.
We changed the clocks back to standard time last weekend. That’s great for the mornings because now at least it’s light out when we eat breakfast, but what that time change does to the evenings just plain sucks. The sun now sets at 5:00 – only an hour after the kids get home from school. The evenings feel so long now, and you find yourself looking at the clock, wondering if it’s late enough to go to bed already (or if you can send the kids to bed already).
If you live somewhere that practices daylight savings, you know what I’m talking about. It seems the older I get, the harder it is to adjust to the time change. The long, dark evenings make me want to close the blinds, lock the doors, and hibernate. It also makes me want to eat soup. There isn’t a food out there that is as comforting as soup is. Have a steaming bowl of this Creamy Turkey Soup with Sage with a side of gluten free biscuits or cornbread muffins is the food version of having a warm sweater and fuzzy slippers.
Soup doesn’t have to be difficult or time consuming to prepare either – do it when you have time. Soup can be stored in the refrigerator, or even frozen, and warmed up at a later time. We all know that soup tastes best when it’s been reheated, right? So, let’s embrace eating dinner in the dark – it’s time to pull out those sweaters and fuzzy slippers and make some soup!
