Curried Millet Spinach Soup

It was a wonderful, record-setting 89 degrees on Wednesday; now it’s cloudy and 45. At least I had an excuse to make soup. After two great soup recipes from V-con, I went back to Nava Atlas’ Vegetarian Soups for All Seasons. The Curried Millet Spinach Soup is hearty and perfectly seasoned just as written. I’m not a big fan of curry powder, but the mere 2 teaspoons for 8 servings is just right. It makes a big pot.

I used sweet potatoes instead of white, since that what I had on hand. I needed to add 1-1/2 cups of water to the pot when I reheated it, and added just a touch more salt and pepper. A small bowl is very filling.

I'm going to have to bake all day to stay warm.

89 degrees??? Oh my! Today it dropped to the lowest high since last winter. 42. Yikes. It's times like this when I really miss CA.

Weather is crazy, isn't it? It was 70 here on Thanksgiving morning, and now it's going down to 25.

At least the soup is one good thinkg about cold weather.
