Do you think the groundhog will see his shadow today—or is spring coming sooner than expected? Well, regardless of what Punxsutawney Phil does or does not see today, the fact is: we still have a month and a half left of the woe-some winter. Cold, windy, snowy, brutal, and blustery conditions are inevitable. Brrr. (UPDATE: It's official. He saw it! So don't put away those mittens and pom-pom hats just yet!)
Luckily for those of us who like an excuse to celebrate, Groundhog's Day is not the only holiday on the calendar this week. (No, we're not talking about the Super Bowl... Although, all of the recipes below are most definitely SB-worthy!). Saturday, Feb. 4, just so happens to be National Soup Day. And I fully plan on taking advantage with a steaming hot bowl of soul-warming deliciousness.
I love the versatility of soup. It's a great and easy lunch served with a salad or a hearty dinner when served with a hunk-a-chunk of Italian bread. I love me a grilled cheese, but I prefer my soup to be a self-contained meal with protein, veggies, carbs, and all sorts of salty, spicy goodness cooked inside. Every spoonful should be a delightful surprise!
I plan on slurping up a lot of soup throughout February and March, and so I've rounded up a few new recipes that are flavorful and fulfilling. Soup is on—get it while it's hot... and cold outside!
