It’s not often cold here, really cold anyway, and we’ve had a bit of a cold snap come through, so this was the perfect time to work on this month’s Blogger C.L.U.E. theme– soups & stews. Who doesn’t love a good belly warming bowl of comforting soup?
I was assigned to Authentic Suburban Gourmet and went right to “work” looking for a scrumptious soup to dish up. I didn’t stew over it for long (see what I did there) as I quickly came across Perfect Italian Soup, and it had my name written all over it. At this time of year I really crave a nice bowl of ribollita which makes me fondly remember my time living in Florence, Italy. Ribollita is a rustic soup made with vegetables, and bread- it translates to reboiled, as it’s a peasants soup that dates back centuries. It is classically Tuscan and perfectly delizioso. Ribollita, GOOD ribollita, is really hard to find here, but I’m always up for something with an Italian flair, and although this is a different kind of soup, it’s a great recipe to have on hand when the temperatures drop. So here’s my take on Lisa’s Italian Soup.
I arrived home from BlogHer Food very sleepy on Sunday, to a counter full of very ripe tomatoes from my Organic Buying Club (Annie’s Buying Club- there are tons of locations all over Florida). I knew there was no way I would be able to eat them in time so, while I sipped a JUMBO mug of coffee, wondering what to do…I looked around at all the sweet swag I got from the BlogHer Food conference, and it all clicked (and started my mouth watering): Roasted Tomatoes!
