I can only blame it on snow "madness"--the blatant use of another's blog post.
Spring snow can cause one to do nefarious things!
Susan, at Savoring Time in the Kitchen, posted the most delicious looking soup the other day.
Snow was predicted for us the following day.
I had a bit of saffron that I needed to use.
I coveted the soup and croutons luxuriating on top.
Whether or not the above is a good defense, it was all worth it at first bite!!
For the recipe, you'll have to go over to Susan's blog. If it's your first visit, you'll be happy for the introduction!! I only made one minor change. My French baguette did not lend itself to being decrusted. Therefore my bowl is less refined than Susan's. The croutons are worth doubling the recipe so one can have an occasional nibble--maybe with a glass of wine!
