Are you feeling it too? Is it cooling down in your area? We are having a lot of rainy days around here, and a little bit of a breeze. Which I love because I feel it is definitely soup season. This recipe is one of the soups that have always been in my home’s menu since I was a little girl.
My grandmother, my mom, and my aunts would always talk about the food they made, the recipes they discovered and were always, always sharing great flavors and new ingredient combinations. They were always telling each other what they made for lunch, for dinner or what new recipe they discovered. I even remember some afternoons they took cookbooks or their recipe books for their afternoon coffee and wrote (by hand) and talked about food all their get together.

The recipes they passed on were without quantities or exact ingredients. They always said, “to add a bit,” “a pinch” of this or that until you like the taste.
I think this is why it is so difficult for me to measure the ingredients when I’m cooking. I grew up listening to them just adding, tasting, and making it better. And these are the family recipes that until now they have been passing down from generation to generation.
