Well. The groundhogs have spoken, Wiarton Willie in Ontario and Punxsutawney Phil of Pennsylvania have both predicted another six weeks of winter. What better way to keep warm and cozy, than to make some good soup. The Baron of Baking and I pulled out the leftovers from that Christmas Goose I made and made the most incredible soup completely from scratch.
Soup is something that some people just can’t seem to get right, but it must be in the Baron’s genes because his Granny and he himself just MAKE soup. It just happens. They throw this and that in a pot and magically a great soup appears. I don’t know how to describe it. I watched closely this time and the following is how it happened.
I have never been big on soup. I feel like I don’t get full enough when I have it. But this Goose Soup is just the best. I was full and happy after eating it, but didn’t feel like I’d eaten a side of beef. I didn’t need chocolate or dessert (they are NOT the same thing) after either. Goose soup is satisfying and warm. It’s feel good soup that is a great way to make the most of your leftover goose. I mean a goose is expensive, and if you can get a flipping great meal, yay, but two or more? Now that’s value!
With winter supposed to last another six weeks, how do you plan on riding the rest of this cold weather out? Leave a comment below and tell us how you plan to stay warm for these extra six weeks of winter.

Such Spicy Garlic
