Soup, what does it mean to you? For me it’s warmth, comfort and nourishment in one bowl. I can enjoy soup any time of day or year, no matter what the weather. When your full from enjoying a bowl of soup you feel nice and warm, it’s like you’re getting a hug back. There are different kinds of soup depending on region and ethnicity. They can be clear, creamy, full of meat, veggies, hot or cold. When my husband and I would visit his late Uncle and Aunt who were in their nineties, a pot of soup was always brought out, I cherish that memory.
|Artichokes in the Garden|
I’ve been clearing out the garden and preparing the ground for winter. Some of the plants I will leave alone and just cover them with some hay. Others I will till into the soil. This year I let some of the dill and bush beans dry out and go to seed so I could save them and plant them again next year. Hopefully I will remember where I tucked these seeds away. One of the plants that I did not pull out but cut way down was the artichoke bush. Hence this fresh artichoke soup.
