Yesterday was the first time that my our soup bowls hit our table for the year (wet, windy and hail - perfect soup weather). I thrifted a set of 5 way back here in 2010, not long after I found another two sets by the same company, same colour but a different design, they are made by Tams of England.
I use them only for soup, it makes our soup eating just a little more special I think. Yummy pumpkin, with some garlic bread. I always add some red curry paste to my pumpkin soup, adds a nice little extra warming kick! Do you have special serve-ware that you only use for a special something?
