Autumn means soup

This picture is of my hearty bowl of ramen soup that I made for lunch the other day. I love when I get just the right angle in order to display the yumminess of what I am eating! Autumn is here and it’s time for soups galore again. I purchase a brand of ramen soup called “Mike’s Mighty good ramen” and it is insane good. I will saute some veggies such as onions, mushrooms, garlic and bok choy to add to my soup. I sometimes include a nice boiled egg, diced tofu or tempeh for protein. Then, once the noodles and broth have cooked, I will add carrots and green onion. When I say this soup tastes like something I’d order at a restaurant, I mean it!

This is totally comfort food at it’s finest. Good to the last drop and the broth has some spiciness which I savor.

There are quite a few other homemade soups I enjoy making such as split pea, lentil, potato, vegetable and minestrone. Take your time to make yourself some soul warming soup. It is delightful during this time of year, makes great leftovers and is delicious with crusty, buttery bread on the side to dunk in your soup. Thanks for reading and have a beautiful, relaxing weekend. πŸ™πŸΎπŸŒ¬πŸπŸ‚πŸŒΌ

Autumn Goddess…

Mielikki, Finnish Goddess of the  Forest…she is there as the leaves fall…covering the Earth in a multitude of colors like a beautiful quilt. Reigning over and protecting precious life as winter begins to summon its arrival. Rest now, quietly and sweetly in her arms, she is a protector from harm…so regal and strong…
