Tonight has been breezy and crisp in Encinitas, and with an endo flare and upset tummy, the only thing I can stomach (literally) is soup. And there’s nothing worse than boring ol’ canned soups that all taste the same (except I def eat those, too, especially when I don’t have the energy after a long work day to make something from scratch, so I’m not judging those canned gems in any way).

Anyway, this soup is comforting, soothing, and perfect for fall. So weather (see what I did there; I know whether is grammatically correct) you’re in the mood for soup because of the changing seasons, or need something gentle on your belly, hopefully this does the trick.
