A lot of people carry a grudge against Fall for its bitter winds, chilly days, and even colder nights. Most of all, they hate to see Summer’s passing. One thing I have found, however, is that what all people love about Fall is its food. Fall has the coziest, warmest, most comforting foods the year has to offer. Everyone, even the Anti-Autumns, rejoice to see the return of pumpkin, squash, soup, apple, and all kinds of baked goods filled with warm spices.
Winter’s got some good stuff, but Fall is really where it’s at. We all love it. Some take enjoyment in cozying up and sipping cider (or perhaps munching on a fresh cider donut); others prefer filling the house with the sweet spices of Fall while baking. Many enjoy a good slow-cooked meal or the promise of a Thanksgiving feast in the near future. At the very least, we can look forward to the sugary Halloween candy. Autumn truly is a cornucopia of delightful eats.
One Fall food I really adore is soup. Soup spills over into Winter as well, which makes sense considering it’s perfect for combating the cold weather. I just love to sit down to a warm bowl of creamy soup and spoon in mouthfuls of comforting goodness. One of my favorite soup flavors, loved by vegetarians and meat-eaters alike, is broccoli cheese. If you’re anything like me, you grew up eating the Campbell’s version out of a can. That stuff was pretty good. Nowadays though, we all have a more experienced and picky palate; therefore, it may take more than Campbell’s to please us. Enter this homemade Broccoli-Cheddar Soup.
