Happy Birthday to meeeee! So lets celebrate with something a little different. In comes soup!

Ah Carrot, Sweet Potato, Ginger + Almond Soup, I hold you very very dear to my heart. (Your ridiculously long name should hint at it a liiiitle bit) Did you know that? You did? You could tell by how I make you every second week and sometimes a few weeks in a row? Good good. Glad to know you feel loved.

When I lived at home, every week my mom would ask us what soup we would like for dinner. Every single time my answer was the same. Carrot, Sweet Potato, Ginger + Almond Soup pretty please!! And then she’d look at me and say, “Again? No, not this week. You know you’re gonna turn orange one day, Emma!” And then I would sigh, “Fiiiiinnnee Mom.” And continue naming every kind of soup that popped into my head.
