In Chicago, this in-between spring and winter time can feel like the longest time of year. One day it will be 50 degrees, the next day it will snow 2 inches, then it will be sunny and 45, and then 30 with a bitter wind off the lake.
That legitimately was the weather this week. Continue reading
I have one more soup recipe for you before it gets too warm to even think about soup. And I think this might be one of my new favorite soups, which is saying a lot because I like soup.
Why do I like soup? I like throwing a bunch of things into one pot and making a meal out of it.

Stopping in to apologize for such a late post AND for the fact that this week will be a bit wonky.
My mom is having surgery today (planned NOT a random surprise) and I will be taking care of her for the next week. The woman did birth me, raise me, and tend to my every need for years so the least I can do is take care of her for a week 😉
Anyways, I will try to keep up with my regular posts but if they’re late or don’t come at all that’s why. I hope you had an excellent weekend and a super week ahead!
