Mary Grace’s Summer Squash Hearty Soup Is Better Enjoyed on a Rainy Day

June 30, 2019

The rain’s been pouring lately, and while we’d rather hide in our thick blankets forever, we wouldn’t mind getting up for some hot soup. We have to say, it’d be ideal to have something made by a parent to get that peak comfort feeling. But when we’re craving home-cooked, feels-like-mom’s-hug food, Mary Grace‘s menu cuts it darn close.

Ladle it up!

No one’s going out in this weather, so we hacked Mary Grace’s Summer (ironic, we know) Squash Hearty Soup so you can have your own bowl at home. It may come a tad sour, so just add cream to balance it out based on your preference. The best part about this recipe is that it’s heavy enough to keep your full for a while, giving you an excuse to stay in bed the rest of the day. You’re welcome.
