Summer’s Bounty Herb and Veggie Soup

It’s finally cooling down here in BC. Yippee!!!

I’m feeling better already! It had been hot for weeks with no rain. Very draining weather. 😦

And with the cooler  temps. I’m getting back into cooking some of my favs again, like yummy soups and homemade breads.

This is one of my favorite late summer soup recipes that incorporates lots of the garden bounty.

I hope you’ll enjoy it soon.

Here’s the link to the recipe and original post with comments.

It really is as yummy as it looks.

And IMO it’s (almost)) always the right time for soup!!! 😉 Not when it’s over 90C though LOL.

Happy Cooking.

PS: How’s your weather?
