I love soup.
As soon as cooler weather hits, I'm pulling out the soup recipes.
Nothing beats soup for spreading a rich comforting aroma through the house - a teaser for the belly warming meal to come.
Soups are simple. They call for ingredients that are easy to find and usually on hand.
Soups are easy. Usually there is nothing harder then cutting up some veggies and measuring some spices.
Soups are healthy. Want to add more vegetables to your diet? Choose a soup that focuses on veggies.
Soups are cheap. Aiming to stretch your meat - or go meatless? Choose soups. Cheap cuts of meat simmered all day, will make a wonderful soup with incredible broth.
My goal was to name October as "Soup Month" here at Home Joys. I was going to dig out some old favorites, try some new recipes and maybe ask you to contribute your favorite soup. I didn't know if I could do a soup recipe for each day of the month, but I did think I could get close!
But life has been crazy this past week with little computer time. So here we are, several days into October.
But it is never too late to start.
Since I'm working with a large amount of ground beef today, I'll share my favorite hamburger soup later today.
Meanwhile, do you have a favorite soup recipe? I'd love if you would share it. Leave a comment or email me (walkingbymyside AT gmail.com)
Or email me if you'd like to write a guest post to be included this month - just be sure to remember a photo of your soup.
And join me in making soup in October!
