Carrot Ginger Soup

Carrot Ginger Soup

I’m over at Guinea Pigging Green today sharing the recipe for this delicious, cozy soup. Ever since the weather shifted to become cooler, I’ve been trying to soak up every minute of Fall. It’s my favourite season and it’s so short in Canada, but in Busan I’ve heard it stretches out over a few months. I now consistently need a scarf when I go out, and have started to add some layers to my outfits as well. I’ve been drinking hot beverages and gravitating towards warm meals, including soups. At home, my mom makes a soup every week for lunches and dinners and I’ve been trying to follow suit, although less reliably than once a week. This is only my second of the season, but I am hooked on the simplicity of them – both the making and the eating. My mom will laugh because I never wanted to eat much soup at home, but how things change when you’re living on your own!

I’m excited to start making soup more often and eating it in the cool evenings after work. This one is perfect because it has a little bit of a kick to it from the ginger, garlic and black pepper. Plus it’s bright orange! So it’s beautiful to boot.

Inspired By Autumn

But this year I’m really trying to make the most of my beloved Autumn, as long as it sticks around. I’ve been apple picking, hiking, baking, eating soup (and flagging recipes to make it!), and going on little strolls in the crisp night air, kicking up leaves all the way! What have you been doing to celebrate fall?

At home, I’ve been having lots of fun with festive, harvest-like, Halloween-y decorations. It’s been really comforting to create a few little autumnal touches for my humble little apartment – it makes it feel more cozy and homey. And it feels like I’m making an effort to appreciate my favourite season! In the coming weeks, I hope I’ll have a chance to snuggle up more into the fall weather, and celebrate with warm apple cider, carved pumpkins and roasted root veggies. Mmm.
