White Bean and Bacon Soup

White Bean and Bacon Soup 1

I’m OBSESSED with this white bean and bacon soup. Seriously. I’ve made it twice over the last several weeks and plan to make it a third time this weekend. It’s so good!

At the risk of sounding too melodramatic, I must say, this soup has been a beacon of hope during these gray, chilly, rainy/snowy/sleety Michigan spring days, which are driving me half-insane at this point – and somehow making me miss winter, which at least doesn’t pretend to be something it isn’t.

Spring is supposed to be sunshine, blue skies, and flowering cherry trees – and jaunting about in cute new open-toed sandals with a fresh, pretty pedicure!

Recipe creation, for me, often originates from the practical standpoint of “I need to use X and Y and Z before they go bad – what can I incorporate them in?” I’m sure many of you can relate, especially at this time of year, when swoon-worthy produce is everywhere. It’s too easy to buy too much up at once at my beloved neighborhood Italian produce market – it just all always looks so lovely!
