Yesterday was the coldest day in NYC since last January- winter doesn’t seem to be messing around this year. From the snow on Monday, to now freezing temperatures and windy walks to work, all I ever seem to want to eat is soup.
My favorite soup is French onion, and the best I’ve ever had was here. My mom still talks (likely dreams) about a butternut squash soup she had when my family visited me while I was studying abroad from here. For that semester in Paris, soup was my go-to when I was low on funds. Now, it is the only meal that can truly warm me up.
When I think of Cup of Noodles I think of all the stories I have heard of people surviving on them for their first year living in NYC. For one of my best friends, I think she would opt for this meal even if she was blowing her nose with one hundred dollar bills. Today is her birthday, so I couldn’t think of a more fitting cupcake for her.
Happy Birthday CLG, and Happy Friday!
