There is something so satisfying about going to the store and spending next to nothing for everything you need for a good hearty meal (or two). For me, the ultimate embodiment of that is this soup recipe. What made me think of sharing this with you? Well, quite the opposite. Last weekend we decided to have a special Saturday night at home and cook a nice dinner for ourselves. On top of the fact that I am less than enticed by the restaurants we have tried since we’ve moved here, a fancy dinner at home usually costs as much as a cheap dinner out, so I usually prefer the at-home route when it’s all about the food (I realize that sometimes it is good to get out of the house for other reasons). We went to the fish store and got a bunch of shellfish and made a wonderful bouillabaisse. I was actually pretty sad that I couldn’t photograph any of it (it was way too dark) because it was absolutely delicious and felt like such a special meal (hopefully I will re-make it in the eventual future and share it here!).
