Carrot-Ginger Soup

When I was in Denver a few weeks ago Husband picked up some groceries and brought home a huge piece of fresh ginger. While I love ginger, and we use it regularly, there was no way we would be able to use up the whole piece before it went bad. I also knew I had a big bag of fresh carrots from the St. Paul Farmer’s Market, so I went online and found this recipe for Carrot-Ginger Soup. I made a double batch of it this morning so we would have lunch for the week and a few pints for the freezer. I also added a couple cups of leftover rice from another meal to make it a bit more substantial. The soup is good, really good. Simple with just enough tang coming from the ginger. I’ll actually look forward to lunch this week! Yippee!

Have you made any great soup this fall?

I made this Caramel Apple Cake last weekend. It was a ton of work. It has a ton of calories. I almost gave up half way through, but stuck it out. It was worth it. I think.

I’m off to Denver in the morning to celebrate my Nephew’s Second Birthday. See you next week!
