In Minnesota, we consume with the seasons. It’s as tricky to envision a pot roast in July as it is to consider you can get via winter without soup. You do not even have to be unwell. You can just tuck into a particular bowl to ward off the frost at any time in the up coming 6 months. Although if somebody is under the climate, bringing a nourishing, intestine-warming bowl of soup may well be the highest kind of gifting.
