Turmeric & Ginger Carrot Soup

Congratulations! You made it through January…almost.  Unfortunately here in Minnesota, it’s still bitter cold today and there could possibly be a lot of winter weather left based on how cold it was this morning on my run.  Just 2°F.  To be honest, I am not sure if what the Groundhog predicts on February 2nd holds much truth, but I for one am hoping he doesn’t see his shadow and spring arrives early.

Creamy Asparagus Soup

I get it, asparagus soup is not all that exciting compared to a cheesy pasta dish, a chocolate treat, or even a fat juicy burger, (sorry no burger as of yet)!  But since I am getting so much flack for not sharing my asparagus soup recipe I promised to blog about weeks ago, I thought I should get busy before I get banned from our next runners group gathering.

Curried Squash Soup with Coconut & Lime


Since the weather has cooled down, soups are definitely back on the menu!  To be honest, I could eat soup all year round and luckily, so could my hubby!  Soups are one of my favorite dishes and they ALWAYS taste better the next day!  You can bet I make extra to eat for lunch or dinner later in the week.

I’m totally hoarding pumpkins at the moment — I recently picked up my last Fall CSA box and inside were some yummy looking squash.  Not just one, but several!  All different types.  But guess what I picked up a couple weeks ago at our last, local farmers market of the season?   A butternut squash.  Truth be told, I am still buying them!

Is September really over?  Where did it go?  Have you sensed summer is over and fall has begun like me?  The leaves are turning yellow, red, orange, brown, and maybe some trees are leafless?  Oh no!  The air is chilly and I am now wearing my running hats on these brisk morning runs.
