Raise your hand if you love soup!
Raise your hand if you’ve hand a cold for three weeks and soup helps you feel better! Â Honestly, is it ever going to warm up outside? Â (Okay, I guess I can’t complain too much since it almost hit 70 the other day, but I’ve never seen so much cold in one winter in Texas before – and it’s not even February yet. Â Brrr!)
But, soup, ah, soup.
I received some samples from Smart

The Thai Coconut Curry is packed with spicy, bold flavors with lots of chunks of vegetables and coconut. Â It is definitely a real pick-me-up, wake-me-up soup. Â You can see the herbs – I love that!
Vietnamese Carrot Lemongrass is spicy and sweet, a curry-based soup. Â Chunks of carrots, coconut, and some beans help give substance to this great mix of flavors. Â It is definitely different for me, but I really like it!
The Santa Fe Corn Chowder is tomato-based and full of corn, black beans, and chunks of potato and red bell pepper. Â It has just a hint of spice and is perfect for a cold day when you have a cold (my life in January, in a nutshell). Â It certainly helped me breathe better.
The French Lentil, another tomato-based soup, was a “sharesies” with Carter. Â While I was warming it up (you know, those long two minutes), he said “I bet that soup is really healthy” while reading the box. Â Carter loved the chunks of carrots and red bell pepper, its “very good” flavor. Â It has a slight hint of sweetness and of spice to it. Â My little man said it is “easier to drink it” (my husband hates soup, so I usually make mine really thick). Â I, however, am quite composed and can accurately and purposefully wield my spoon in a proper manner. Â 😛
If you like fresh-tasting soups without all the hassle of making it yourself, give Smart Soup a try. Â And if you’ve got any connection to the north winds, please tell them to leave Texas alone.
