Apparently it’s really cold and snowy everywhere in the country while we are sweating our cakes off here in Florida. I can’t say that I miss the cold. I grew up in Arizona and never even owned a real coat until college. In college, when it would snow I would try as hard as I could to not go anywhere. I managed to slide my car off the road a couple of times and was traumatized by it. I can’t even walk in the cold. I’m like Bambi on ice.
But there are a couple of things that I love about the cold. I love snowboarding and I love curling up with a warm hearty soup that takes the chill out of your bones.
If you’ve ever been to Olive Garden you’ll recognize this soup. It’s a knock off of their Zuppa Toscana. It’s spicy, filling, and full of flavor. Forget the restaurant soup, this is just as good if not better.
