I have been craving a bursting with flavor curried soup for a while now. My blender took an untimely death (the second one that has died on me in 3 months) so creamy soups and smoothies have only surfaced in my dreams. Today I made it my mission to go out and buy a blender. I ended up just getting a hand blender, which will more than suffice for the job.
I chopped up an acorn squash along with some carrots, potatoes and onion and tossed them all in the pot. I mixed in some spices, all sorts of spices I can’t even really remember now, and eventually stirred in some coconut milk before blending.
Along side this comforting bowl of goodness I served up some homemade naan bread. I used the same easy peasy recipe as before, but just cut it in half this time.
I love a good bowl of soup!
This soup was promptly followed by a couple of leftover macaroons from last night. I made sure to set some aside; a secret stash one might say! Yum!
I am off to watch some “trashy” TV, as my husband would call it. If only he could appreciate the goodness of girly shows and reality TV…Ha, maybe in another lifetime 🙂
Have a fab day.
p.s. I read the most interesting article today on the New York Times website; Communal Table: The 36-Hour Dinner Party. Written by Michael Pollan, it is an account of a weekend of cooking and eating over a wood burning earth oven. It’s a great article about food and how cooking can be such a communal activity.
