Well it’s kinda a wintry blustery kind of day over here in the Willamette Valley.  Holding down the fort inside the house and needed something more than just P B and J, I noticed we had a large bag of carrots just sitting there in the vegetable crisper.  I have to say I always love the rich concentrated carrot flavor of  braised carrots from doing a roast this time of year, Yummmm!  Well with just some basic staples, some fresh chives out of the garden, and a dollop of sour cream, thought I could make something great to have around for the next couple of days.  Through the simple process of roasting, concentrates flavors and delightfully warms the house.

Well here we go every one, my take on a Roasted Carrot Soup.
