I don’t know about you but I always look forward to fall around this time of year. We’re in August now and I’m just kind of over summer at this point. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the summertime but I just feel like I’ve enjoyed it as much as I’m going to and I’m ready for the cooler weather, foliage colors, big sweaters and of course.. pumpkin everything. Yes I’m one of those girls.
Well, this post is long overdue. Life just got a little crazy these past few weeks and I didn’t get around to posting as many recipes as I normally do. I apologize for that! But I am human and this kind of thing just happens sometimes. But I’m here now and ready to get back at it.
This is by far one of my favorite recipes. Not only because it’s delicious but because it’s incredibly easy to make, it’s cost effective and it’s perfect for meal prepping! This recipe makes a very large amount but the good thing is it tastes just as good reheated which makes it perfect for lunches throughout the week! This is a hearty soup that is packed with flavor and is ideal for these chilly nights. Speaking of chillier nights, I’m hoping for cooler temperatures here in Charleston soon.. the weather hasn’t really decided what it wants to do. Just before Thanksgiving it was starting to cool down to the low 60’s during the day and it was PERFECT. This week it’s decided it wants to go back up in the high 70’s.. just as I finished decorating for Christmas. I am totally a sweater weather person around the holidays. Something about it being T-shirt weather when Christmas music is playing just bothers me.
I was going to start this post talking about the huge hurricane that is heading our way but I figured maybe I shouldn’t.. I think everyone is worried enough and to keep dwelling on it probably won’t do much good. All I will say is stay safe if you’re in the area and I’m praying for the best outcome possible. We headed up to Charlotte for the week/weekend. It’s kind of nice to stay for a while and visit with friends and family, even if its under not-so-great circumstances.
