Yep…I’m one lucky girl! I’ve been begging for one of these pretty much non-stop for like the last year! And I’m already obsessed.

So like I was saying, happy anniversary to my best friend, the love of my life and my biggest supporter! I wouldn’t be where I am today without you! I love you!

And now llet’s move on to the food shall we?

If you want to bulk up this soup itself a little more, try adding some quinoa and black beans like I did the next day for lunch!

We ate this soup warm but it would also be good cold in the summer!

Enjoy!
