the saturday soup

Source: Running With Tweezers » Food and Drink

I make soup…a lot. Often. Weekly at the very least. To me, the process of making soup is really therapeutic. Nostalgic – my mother always made incredible soups. The emotionally connected cooking of soup balanced with the random-to-haphazard-ness of throwing stuff in a pot & making it work is usually seen, by those who know me, as a sign of how I’m feeling. When soup is on the stove, I’m either in the groove of cooking & creating…or I’m in need of comfort – feeling some sort of way, as my friend Shameeka would say.

I’ve been fortunate enough to have made a friend this year that is a tea connoisseur. We’ve been to a few afternoon tea services and they vary wildly. While many of them err on the side of traditional and a bit conservative – not that there’s anything wrong with that –  we recently spent an afternoon at Watershed that I just needed to share with you.
