Minestrone Soup using much of the last of the garden veggies & local Italian sausage
Amazing corn chowder
A big pot of great chili of course with some of our Ancho chilis added
All this the last 2 weeks or so.
I’m hoping my wife makes some of her tomato soup next week with the last of our tomatoes.
Fall time is soup time. Also casserole time…
@2many2no bulgogi soup? Now I HAVE to try that! Local Korean place makes a lamb soup that comes in a stoneware crock literally boiling with a spice heat that will blow the top of your head off. It’s wonderful.
Veggie bin soup - potatoes, carrots, onions, broccoli, chick peas,(and/or whatever else is in the fridge and needs to be used!) seasonings, chicken broth. Chop, toss, simmer and keep adding liquid till it gets soft and savory. I make this often.
@Kyeh If I’m being honest, aside from the fresh fruits (tomatoes, berries, apples, etc.), I’m not sure I notice all that much difference in taste between produce from the garden and from the grocery store. But there is the satisfaction of eating something you grew yourself and the (probably imagined) superior nutrition of the fresh stuff that makes it seem better.
“Ham” and beans (brick roux and hickory salt to simulate the flavor)
Ravioli en brodo
Cream of celery
Cream of squash
Escarole and beans
All vegetarian for my wife except for the last, which she doesn’t like. Which is fine with me, 'cause that means I get to make it the way Grandma used to. It’s my all-time favorite. It’s only an occasional treat nowadays, though, because the greens interfere with my Warfarin.
I love soup and could eat it all through the fall and winter but if I make it two weeks in a row my boyfriends like “soup again.” He’s a meat and potato’s guy. I still might just start making small batches for myself.
I have the copycat recipe to max and ermas tortilla soup and that comes out really good. Always make it this times of the year.
We’ve had some cool & crappy weather already this year so the soup pot has been getting quite the workout so far! Take a look below…Pork Chili Verde, Chili, Creamy Chicken Vegetable, & Bacon Cheeseburger…and this is all within the last 10 days!
@tinamarie1974 I don’t really cook from recipes. I study up on recipes from all over, or see something on Food Network that inspires me. I use that as guidance, then go out into the wilderness on my own. Way more often than not, it comes back a winner! I live by the motto, “Never Retreat. Trust Your Skill.” (Excerpt of lyrics from “Pil Sung” by Sons Of Poseidon) That said, here’s a link to the recipe from DDD that inspired me for this… Pork Chili Verde
not yet and probably won’t (unless it’s to make shortcut egg drop soup if i get sick). and i do like soup. but it wouldn’t be something my partner would really be excited to eat for dinner and i don’t really eat lunch. made a big pot of chili last night though. and it must have really hit the spot because he went back for seconds at dinner and then for thirds sometime after 1am, based on the evidence in the kitchen this morning
Since early September (the start of ‘fall’ even though technically it isn’t)
Gazpacho a couple of weeks ago during a wine tasting with friends
Several un-named hot soups with assorted ingredients that happened to be on hand and were delicious.
My wife makes some great (and hearty) soup.
