Soups are one of my favorite foods. I really like the flavors as they meld together and form a unique blend. I prefer pureed soups but will eat just about any type of soup. There is something comforting about them. As a child, if soup was on the table, it was from a can. The only exception was chowder, in Maine, everyone eats chowder.
In Atlanta, hot soup is not really a summer dish. One of the last things most people want to eat is a hot hearty bowl of soup when they are sweating in 95 degrees. Me? I crank up the air conditioning and eat soup!
Soup work out wonderful for me because it travels easy. I can takes bowls of it to work and eat it for days. I recently made one of my more hearty soups. Black Bean and Corn Soup. This seems to be a favorite among the few people who regularly eat my food, as well as a favorite of mine. Not a very summer friendly soup but I am fighting back against the hot weather!
