Today, February 4th, is National Soup Day and it is definitely soup-worthy weather which is why I ended up heading to the Soup Spoon Cafe to celebrate.

Now, I'm the type to do a quick search of a restaurant and their menu before I go so when I saw they have a "soup flight" I was already sold.

You know how you can go to a brewery and get mini-sizes of various beers you want to try? Yeah, they do that...but with SOUP.

I'll admit I felt awkward eating alone but the staff is so sweet and as soon as the waitress sat me and asked me what I would like to drink, it all got even better.

She asked, "Can I get you any coffee, a mimosa, anything?"

Being on a morning radio show, I'm ready for lunch time a bit earlier than others but having a mimosa at 11 a.m., something I reserve for a Sunday brunch, on a Tuesday? I was all in.

So I get my mimosa, order my soup flight which included chicken noodle, broccoli cheddar, gumbo, and French onion soups and think, "This. This is how you celebrate National Soup Day."

I am a big gumbo gal and I can assure you, this is some of the best I've ever tried (at least here in the midwest) and you wouldn't think it would pair well with a mimosa but just do it and thank me later.

So get a cup, a bowl or a flight of your favorite soup today and *cheers* to a happy National Soup Day.
