The fall weather has finally hit us! Which means soups and comfort food time is here! I love this time of year. The crisp air and the yummy, hearty meals like this Carrot and Potato Soup that go along with that crisp weather!

When I think of fall beside the colder weather, the leaves falling to the ground and the flu bugs that tend to come along, I think of comfort. Comfort food, especially ones that contain vegetables that are ideal for you and your health. Ginger, an ingredient in this soup I am about to share with you, is excellent for fall. It’s a beautiful little addition, and has a lot of benefits!

    Soups are one of those meals that everyone loves and we never really have any objections to the soups we come up with! Today, I’m sharing this delicious Carrot and Potato soup with you.

    This is soup for those who love veggies! It’s delicious, creamy and filling. I like the creamier soups as opposed to the runnier soups, especially during fall. They can’t be beaten. Something about them just screams comfort and warmth.

    With the leaves changing, the weather being cooler and the kids spending more time inside. Making a good big pot of soup is a great way to not only have the house smelling delicious but fill everyone’s bellies up with a hearty bowl of soup.

    If you are like me and enjoy a creamier, heavier soup. This is the soup for you. It’s perfect for a family meal, and leftovers make great lunches for the week! My kids even like taking them in a thermos to school – they stay hot and taste just as good the next day or day after!
