I’ve been absolutely cah-raving soup. Badly.

To the point where I couldn’t take it anymore.

And um, soup plus pot pie? I’m pretty sure that is more than a match made in heaven. Yes. More than.

It’s only, like… combining the two most perfect dishes ever. Forevah evah.

And it’s one of the only vehicles that can successfully transport vegetables into my body. Yep.

For the last 3 days I’ve felt like utter crud. NOTHING tastes better than soup when you feel like crud and want nothing more than to take a giant plunger to your nose and mouth. Except maybe Chipotle. And an ice cream sundae. And a milkshake. And pad thai. And Chipotle.

I actually want all of that rightthisminute on a huge platter. Badly. Guess someone’s on the mend.

Soooo… I made this soup after harassing my husband for six straight hours to come to yoga with me. In all honesty – I just needed a good laugh. And obviously something to do with my time. But one of those hurts-your-stomach-and-cheeks giggles.  The best. Because see? About four years ago I coerced him into doing yoga with me and lasted about thirty-three seconds before falling over in hysterics. Funniest stuff ever. I want to show you a video. Badly.
