Creamy Cauliflower Chowder

To me, each season has their beauty and appeal.  Winter, it seems, is all about slow living.  Wearing slippers around the kitchen making hot, comforting pots of soup and eating way too many brownies.  Snuggling under warm blankets with nothing on the agenda but a good movie.  Gazing out the window as snow gently falls.  Winter is an excuse to do nothing.  And eat said soup while doing nothing.
