Carrots? Soup? Ok.

It seems wrong that last week I was excited about BBQ season and now I'm giving you a soup recipe... It's been a cold, rainy, dull few days here in Nova Scotia. Unfortunately, my Mama and Pops are visiting during this horrible weather week! But it could be worse, right?

Anyway, when my Mamma arrived she for some reason bought an obscene amount of carrots (10lbs to be exact) so we thought some carrot soup would be a good way to use them up and warm us up!
