All of the sudden, Portland is cold. Jason and I spent all Valentines day together, going to breakfast, running errands, walking the dog… you know, comforting togetherness. All day, though, both of us kept talking about how cold it was (and Jason is never cold!). Coming home after Valentines dinner out, there was ice on the ground where we live.
Portland finally got it’s winter! That means all kinds of comforting soups and lots of slow cooker action. While our favorite soup continues to be my African peanut, we like all kinds of soup around here.
I always like my soups to have some kind of crunchy garnish, so this curried lentil soup comes with cauliflower croutons.
Yeah, I could eat a whole pan of that. I will even admit that I have. Oops. Yes, I had to make another batch for a recipe. It was worth the drive back to the store…
