the smell of my desperation has become a stench

Curried cream of broccoli soup

This week in my ongoing adventures in the kitchen I looked in my fridge again for what I had on hand, did a quick google search and landed on this flavorful broccoli soup recipe from nom nom paleo. I’ve been a huge fan of Michelle Tam since I started eating this way almost three years ago, and her book Nom Nom Paleo: Food for Humans is a fixture in my kitchen. She’s got such an easy-going and conversational way of explaining what she’s cooking and gives me a lot of hope that one day my kids will come around to eating something other than food that is tan and frozen.

Yes, I chose to make another soup, but again. It’s cold outside and this is such a comforting meal. I threw in some grilled chicken and topped it off with some tomatoes, and my god the smell in the house was divine. I didn’t necessarily set out to start cooking more this year, but now that I’m in the kitchen more I realize that I want to give my kids more memories of the aromas of meals. I tried to get Marlo to try this, but alas, it is green. I’ll add some organic tan food coloring to it next time.

Hi. I’m Heather B. Armstrong, and this used to be called mommy blogging. But then they started calling it Influencer Marketing: hashtag ad, hashtag sponsored, hashtag you know you want me to slap your product on my kid and exploit her for millions and millions of dollars. That’s how this shit works. Now? Well… sit back, buckle up, and enjoy the ride.
