Spring Soup

Springtime weather can be so unpredictable – some days it’s freezing cold and raining and other days it’s hot and sunny. We just had many days of cold rainy weather and while the sun is finally out, I still feel like I’m defrosting and drying off.

You probably already know how much love I have of soups and this one is no exception. It’s the kind of soup you can empty your fridge and pantry into with no messing up. Think about it like a vegetable stock, but you never strain anything out. It’s super easy to make and the girls love and I love it!

I know we’ll be eating this all weekend since we’ll be so busy prepping Matilda’s birthday food for her party on Sunday!!!
