Fall is the time for soup!


I do enjoy a good soup. I don't think I've had canned soup for years and years. I only like homemade soups. With the weather cooling down I've found myself making soups. My dear husband and son are not fans of soup so I make a crock pot full and share it with my mother or my friend (and her family that appreciates my soup) that I work with. Last weekend I made a pot roast and saved the left overs for a yummy beef vegetable soup. On Sunday we had a roasted chicken so last night I put the leftovers in the crock pot and made a chicken noodle soup. My other favorite soup to make is linguica and sauerkraut soup. I would like to make some kale soup or broccoli soup too. Do you have a favorite?

take care,
Dawn

YUM...your soup is beautiful Dawn! I'm a homemade soup girl too. The only ready-made soup I buy sometimes is good ol' Campbell's Tomato to have on hand for "emergency meals"--LOL!...but ideal homemade all the time. Soup is one of my favorite meals to make--I like all the slow slicing & dicing of vegetables, slow cooking, it's all worth the wait in that first warm spoonful. Hard to choose one favorite soup though...my heart-favorite is my Mom's vegetable soup though, which I still make all the time, and especially when I need extra comfort or am feeling homesick. Thanks for this cozy post...Happy Day :o) ((HUGS))

I don't think I've ever met a soup I didn't like. I love, love, love homemade soup. My whole family loves soup. Our little guy can put away some soup.

I would be happy to share some of your delicious soups if only we lived closer.

Morning Dawn. Oh, I just love homemade soups. Yours looks delicious! I don't know if I really have a favorite - well, I love my mother's vegetable soup. Bake me up some cornbread and I'll go to town! ;)
Be a sweetie,
Shelai ;)

Yum Dawn, I love all kinds of soup. Beef barley is one of my very favorites.

I am not a huge soup fan, but I do enjoy it in the winter, homemade and very chunky, kind of like a stew. Your soups sound delicious!

Hi Dawn, I too LOVE soup. Any kind of soup, but probably my cheese soup is my favorite. I will make it and post the recipe. My 2nd favorite is vegetable beef soup with barley. Yours looks delicious. I wish I was one of your recipients of your left over soup. Mmmmmmm.

It is still pouring and one of our main roads heading towards the West had a mud slide. We have friends in Chattanooga who were bringing us some deer meat and they didn't make it. They will try again tomorrow.

I am so happy to be visiting you Dawn. Have a great evening.

Hugs...Jeanne

Homemade soup sounds great! I have a Spanish Rice soup that I make that we really love. Hmm...I need to get the ingredients for that so I can make it again.

Becky said...

Spanish Bean Soup is one of my favorites to make. Another is 15 bean soup with a hambone and then corn chowder,let's not forget a big pot of chili.

Hi Dawn
Your soup looks soooo delicious. Your friend and mother sure are lucky to get some now that you are into making soups because its fall. I know what you mean. Too bad your hubby and Tim don't like them...hmmmmm...
I love corn chowder, clam chowder, beef soup with barley and lentils...ohhh the list could go on. I really love soups too and it is getting or has gotten right into soup season.
enjoy.
have a great evening
