Most of the day here was just as chilly and cold as yesterday, so I chose to create a menu that would “balance things out” between seasons. The soup starts out as a pretty traditional rendition of the ubiquitous “chicken noodle soup.” But the additional spring vegetables help elevate it into the “go-between” season and also makes it a bit more “hearty.” In fact, this menu was enough for me just as I present it: soup and bread. But if you have a bigger appetite, then I suggest adding some type of heavy dessert such as a slice of chocolate cake, or chocolate ice cream, or if you are feeling really decadent, BOTH!
