A friend of mine recently had her first child. After she returned home from the hospital, several friends gathered to deliver meals to her. She and her husband are vegetarians, which discourages carnivores from bringing in meals. Since I tend to eat a lot of vegetarian food, all I had to do was use one of the ones I had already planned on the menu. As it happens, not only do I have several vegetarian options, there is even a vegetarian dish on the menu. I knew this soup would be just right. It was a crisp autumn day, and I knew she had only been home from the hospital for a day and was exhausted. I brought her this delicious soup and a loaf of homemade artisan bread. Cozy, cozy, but still exciting: it’s soul-warming food.
