Gloomy day, shrooms all the way.
I must have listed on this blog hundreds of reasons why I love soup and why soup is good. Am going to add another now. Soup is perfect for those moments (or days) when we’re just back from the dentist, hungry as, and unable to eat anything but baby-like food. Yes, (pureed) soup in these moments is, well, priceless. Especially a creamy, comforting and super delicious one, which not only nourishes us but can make us forget any recent ‘traumas’, even if for just few moments.
