Saturday Snapshot: Soup

(Saturday Snapshot is brought to you by At Home With Books. Join us!)

This week’s picture depicts absolute deliciousness and brings back happy memories.

Potato soup

Fantastic, right? It tasted even better than it looked. I’ve always loved a good, hearty soup. It’s filling, nutritious, and warms you right up on cold days.

But I especially love this soup because I enjoyed it with my Best Friend. We’ve both been really busy lately, and haven’t sat down to eat dinner together in over a month. I also haven’t “cooked” anything but microwave dinners lately.

Looking at this photo reminds me of the night I made this soup, when Best Friend and I sat down to eat it while watching “Dr. Who” (which we’re now obsessed with, by the way). I’m glad that summer’s here and he’s done with school for awhile; I miss hanging out with him. And I miss potato soup, too.

    The soup looks much better than my potato soup. It’s too hot already for soups here. Here’s Mine

      Yea, it’s definitely too hot here now too. I think I took this photo sometime in February, maybe March. Still a feasible time for soup. :)

    It does look yummy, although like Paulita location, a little hot here in Central Texas for soups. But…a winter soup – I’m so there. LOL

      I totally agree. I suppose I should have mentioned that I took this photo several months ago, when eating soup wouldn’t cause heat stroke. :) I’m in south central Texas — right now the only thing I was is cold fruit and salad!

      Snow?! That’s crazy! It doesn’t even get down even to freezing until January around here. I’m jealous. :)

    Nothing like a good hearty soup for cool weather. Sharing your recipe?

    • amypeveto May 5, 2012 / 6:24 pm

      It’s actually a ready-to-make kit kind of thing from HEB (a grocery chain in Texas). It comes with most of what you need already — you just add some milk and butter for thickening and away you go. Takes 20-30 minutes, and was surprisingly delicious.

    Oh man . . . that looks like the best kind of comfort food! Yum :)

    • amypeveto May 5, 2012 / 6:25 pm

      It was really good. Even more so because I was enjoying it with a cute boy. ;)

    • amypeveto May 5, 2012 / 6:26 pm

      It was 95 degrees here earlier today, so soup is definitely out for me too. Is it winter yet? :(

    • amypeveto May 5, 2012 / 6:32 pm

      I’m not able to comment on your blog, Melissa, but I love your picture today! Your girl is adorable, and I love her little shorts!

    • amypeveto May 5, 2012 / 6:27 pm

      It was a lot of fun! I think we were still on the 10th Doctor at that point. I love me some David Tennant.

    Mmm, looks delicious! And tasty soup with Doctor Who sounds wonderful. Actually, anything with Doctor Who sounds wonderful. :) I’m fairly obsessed too!

    • amypeveto May 5, 2012 / 6:28 pm

      Yay, a fellow Whovian! Who’s your favorite Doctor?

    Potato soup and Doctor Who – awesome combination! Have you watched all of the past six seasons yet? When my husband and I discovered the show it was like date night every night while we caught up on the episodes.

    • amypeveto May 5, 2012 / 6:30 pm

      We just finished season 6 a couple days ago. It took some time to warm up to the 11th Doctor, but now I like him just as much as the 10th (for different reasons).

      Gotta love date nights. :)

    • amypeveto May 6, 2012 / 11:21 am

      It was very tasty, indeed. And much too hot here for soup now. :)

    • amypeveto May 6, 2012 / 11:23 am

      It was. I wish it stayed cooler here year round so I could eat it more often.

  7. Susan May 5, 2012 / 10:39 pm

    I daresay that a meager plate of cheese and crackers, when eaten with a best friend, would be the most satisfying thing. The fact that you had delicious potato soup to share made things the best of the best … great reflection in this post!

    • amypeveto May 6, 2012 / 11:41 am

      You hit the nail on head, Susan. :) Anything is more fun when you do it with someone for whom you care.

      I’m not able to comment on your blog, but I think you had a great reflection on your post as well. Babies are a blessing, and worth the wait.

    I love soup. Sadly in Australia we’re just sliding into winter, I’m planning a pea soup this afternoon. My husband and son are totally obsessed by Dr Who, so I get to see quite a bit of that too.

    • amypeveto May 6, 2012 / 11:42 am

      I forget that Australia is on a schedule opposite from us. Does it get really cold there? I grew up in a desert that got surprisingly chilly during winter/at night.

      More Whovians! Tell them they’re awesome!

  9. Leslie May 6, 2012 / 1:44 am

    Potato soup is one of my favorites. And unlike most people, I will eat soup year-round. I could watch Doctor Who anytime too. With or without the soup!

    • amypeveto May 6, 2012 / 11:44 am

      I want to eat soup year round, but it gets up into the 100s June-August, and eating hot soup is a recipe for heat stroke. People tend to eat a lot of cold things and lay around in their underwear underneath fans, moaning about how hot it is. :)

  10. Cathy May 6, 2012 / 3:02 pm

    Good food is always best when shared with good friends!

    • amypeveto May 6, 2012 / 3:46 pm

      Couldn’t agree more, Cathy! I’m not able to comment on your blog, but I think your photo is great. I love the colors and shadows.

  11. Cipriano May 7, 2012 / 11:06 pm

    That looks totally TOTALLY delish!
    Geez, I was on my way to bed and now you’ve made me hungry!

    • amypeveto May 8, 2012 / 9:48 pm

      It was delicious! If you’ve got an HEB or similar kind of grocery store nearby, they might have something similar. I found it in the produce section in one of the refrigerated sections that usually line the walls.

      Sweet dreams!
