Any time I can learn something about myself is a good time! It helps me become more aware of life around me, and how I deal with it. On our recent holiday to France I realized how much of my life is routine and how that affects me. When we are at home, I like routine. And not just the daily routine I have developed, but the weekly routine I am used to. I am not inflexible and will do things on the spur of the moment, but disrupting my routine is not something I choose to do. When we are overseas, I have no routine. I just go with the flow and do whatever Dave has chosen for that day. I don’t do the cooking while we are away from home so there are no choices for me to make. I can make suggestions, but the cooking is Dave’s domain. This holiday our plans were disrupted and Dave was the one whose sense of routine was affected. He likes to know where we are going and what we are doing every day while we are overseas. He took a morning to sort out travel arrangements and one day was spent driving with only a few stops. It was only after this that Dave finally relaxed and we could spend time taking it slow, not being in a rush and playing tourist. Our holiday was quite exhausting for a lot of reasons and we got home in time for a late lunch after being in airports or in planes for nearly 24 hours. Thankfully a bowl of soup was the perfect meal, and had I had more of this Jerusalem Artichoke Soup that would have been my first choice. It is silky smooth and the perfect lunch time meal.

I have never cooked much with Jerusalem artichokes, but I think this soup is a must-try!
You will love them Joanne 🙂
The simplest of soups are usually the most comforting! Warm and tasty, I won’t say no this! Thanks, Tandy!
My pleasure Julie 🙂
A great way to use this vegetable and you recipe is so easy – thanks Tandy.
My pleasure Rachel 🙂
Such a simple and nourishing soup to welcome you home. I’m a girl of routine as well, except when I’m traveling. 🙂 I wonder why that is?
I think routine makes our days simpler 🙂
I am rather the same when it comes to routine at home but when I travel, happy to roll with whatever comes up. 🙂 You really must have packed a lot into your adventures if you came home exhausted. Happy Weekend to you Tandy. 🙂
I think the exhaustion had a lot to do with all the delays and mess ups, as well as all the fun 🙂
Hi, Tandy! If I were you I’d try to go on a few more holidays – it sounds great to have a total break and let hubby make all the arrangements!
I love this soup because it’s so so easy but ends up looking beautifully creamy. This is definitely one to try!
Helen, I am so with you there, more holidays are in order!
I’m a huge artichoke fan and would love to make this soup! Creamy and delicious, sometimes soup feels like the ONLY lunch option. Love how Dave made the arrangements on your trip (did the planning) On trips, I’m typically am the planner but get so burned out! And I too, love routine.
I like to feel as if I have had a holiday when I get back from overseas so I always leave everything up to Dave 🙂
Delicious and simple, I love it!
Thanks Angela 🙂
This sounds so simple yet delicious!
Thank you Mary Frances 🙂
Hi Tandy, I have never cooked with or tasted Jerusalem artichokes before, looking forward to trying this recipe, looks delicious! My husband usually plans all of our trips as well, makes it easy for me.
Lucky you, it is so much easier to have someone else do the planning 🙂
Most of the time I have my routine…although like the once in a while out of routine…
The soup sounds and looks delicious….simple are the best.
Enjoy your weekend Tandy 😀
I so agree Juliana 🙂
Wow how easy is that, a 3 ingredient recipe. I will have to give this a try. My husband loves artichokes and this is a great low carb recipe too.
I love simple recipes, and I hope he enjoys the soup BAM 🙂
I gotta confest that i hate to love jerussalem artichope,
pretty damn pricey imported stuff here in Indonesia, i once purchased it 14 USD for only a pair of it,lol
your artichoke soup sure taste comforting!
Wow, this is the reason I do not buy imported produce 🙂
I agree, it’s wonderful to learn new things about yourself. I think people that travel are often really well balanced and see perspective well too!
Thanks Lorraine, I am sure that is the case with you as well 🙂
Lovely easy recipe with a fabulous result.
Have a happy week ahead Tandy.
