No Soup for You


I have a confession to make. I love soup. I was so ready for "soup" weather I was making grilled cheese and tomato soup in September. I should have probably waited until November or so.

Maybe I should have some soup criteria for next year:

* must be no warmer than 60 degrees for so many days in a row

* must be willing to make my own bread to dip because I love to dip bread as much as I love the soup.

* maybe throw in a frosty night or two


In any case, I love soup. Tomato soup, chicken noodle soup, beef stew are a few of my favorites. I have had a pear soup at a wine dinner that was delicious! I have never seen a recipe for one since. But Google is my friend, maybe I'll hunt one down.


So tonight, when we were having this peppered beef soup in asiago cheese bread bowls, I knew I had to snap a few pics. This recipe was from Southern Living, so you know it was good! Now that my belly is all warm and happy, I need to go rest!

4under3.blogspot.com just posted a recipe for loaded baked potato soap and one for the bread to dip in it within the last couple of weeks- it sounded really good and easy to make!

Soup is the best meal :) We just made a Caribbean pork and lima bean stew yesterday--out of this world! (I'm vegetarian, but I did try some of the lima beans)

You could try making cold soups for warmer weather. ;) I think gaspacho is one? I don't know - I can't usually eat cold soup. :)

My funny soup story is that there is a really good restaurant near me that serves lots of great food - salads, soups, sandwiches, breakfast, baked goods... and every time I go there, the only thing I get is matzo ball soup. :P I can't eat anything else with it, and I can't leave without it. :)
