Yummy Carrot Soup

    When I was a little girl, my favorite book was called "The Tawny Scrawny Lion." Short story shorter, there was a lion who didn't eat anything and was way too skinny, so to fatten him up a family of bunnies made him some carrot soup. I thought carrot soup was a myth until I discovered this recipe. It's so simple, you won't believe it tastes so good!

    What you need:

    4 Tbs butter
    12 carrots, sliced
    2 onions, sliced
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp pepper
    pinch of thyme
    8 cups vegetable or chicken broth
    1/2 c rice
    splash of cooking sherry

    What You Do

    Melt butter in a large pot and add the carrots and onions. Simmer for 10 minutes with the lid on.
    Add the broth, thyme, salt, and pepper. Bring to a simmer.
    Add rice and sherry. Simmer on medium heat for 35 minutes.
    In a blender, add 1 ladle-full of the soup mixture and puree until it is the consistency you like - I am a fan of a very smooth, creamy texture.

    Gobble it all up on a rainy day :)
