Spice of Life: Soup like cozy pair of pajamas


This twist on a potato soup is a fast comfort food for fall.

I am not sure if many people love soup the way that I do, but there must be a few out there just like me.

I have noticed, much to my pleasure, that there are more and more soup-only restaurants cropping up around Indiana.

I love this for many reasons, one of which is that they are affordable. But more than that, we can hit up one of these spots for lunch, and everyone can find something that they like.

Many times the featured bowls use ingredient combinations that I may have not tried in a soup before. Most recently I had a carrot, ginger and raisin soup in a sweet whole-wheat bread bowl, and it was incredible.

One of my favorite places is not too far away, in downtown Indianapolis’ City Market, the aptly named Circle City Soups. Every day they have something new simmering into their rotation, and I have not had one yet that I didn’t like.

If you ever want a unique dining experience then head to the City Market. There is a little something for everyone, far outside the norm of pizzas and burgers. Crepes, authentic Louisiana po-boys and barbecue are just a few of the dining choices there.

But as the leaves change color and drop, my mood shifts to all things comfort. Easy, warm food, early bedtimes and flannel pajamas. I am not in the house five minutes and I already have them on.
