Sabroso: Brie & Pear Soup

What a stormy weekend we just had! Perfect excuse to cozy up... read, watch films, pin lovely things, and indulge in some comfort food. Our mom/stepmom whipped up some of our favorite soup for us to take home and warm up with all weekend.

Brie & pear soup is so yummy and so easy to make. Just take a handful of pears (sliced) and 2 cups chicken broth (or bouillon) and simmer until pears are soft. Pour into a food processor and blend until smooth. Return to the pot, add a wheel of brie (trim the rind and cut into small cubes first) and stir until creamy. You can garnish with a variety of spices but we like some nutmeg sprinkled on top.

P.S. Last week was Grandma Kathleen's birthday and today is the anniversary of Nonna's passing. Needless to say, we are feeling you both with us more than usual and miss you so much. 
We know you two would have loved this soup. :)
