oof, following the U.S. election has seriously been like watching a circus for me (I’m Canadian) and it’s hard to think that some of these people are for real…soup should at least help for a little bit…at least for a few more weeks! haha
Love potato soup…time to do it with leeks, nice recipe. I despise election years…but this is the first time I actually feel terrified at the possibilities. Thank God my freezer is stocked with Minestrone Soup.
Yes! I second all of the previous comments. This race is so ugly and desperate on both sides. I’m glad to know I’m not alone in these thoughts because that fb feed can really make you feel like an island. This has brightened my day. Thanks!
Cheers! Amen! Hoorah! I’m right there with you. It’s a sad state of affairs on social media, TV, radio, etc., etc. Hopefully we’ll have a miracle candidate come out of no where and save us all. Until then… soup!
Thank you for the wonderful recipe, photos, and your sincere thoughts on this shit show we can an election. I agree with you 1000% on both the horror of the rise of white supremacy (normalization of it anyway) fomented by the Trump campaign and the flagrant misogyny, often on the part of “liberals” regarding Hillary Clinton’s run. God help us. Soup sounds good right now.
I’ve been feeling an equal amount of sadness at the situation. It seems so much optimism from 8 years ago has now been replaced with hatred and even violence. I think we all need a little more creamy, comforting soup and less politics.
Thanks for your thoughts. I personally have had to scale back my NPR and TV watching the anxiety is is getting overwhelming. The soup looks fantastic and with some cold weather coming I will make it this weekend thank you!
