I mentioned last week that one of my favorite things about fall and winter is that soup is on the menu plan again.
Soup is usually a quick, easy, and frugal meal. It is also often a meal in and of itself. You can add bread and/or salad, but you do not have to.
Because I love soup, and I think many of you love soup also, I am starting Soup Monday, or Monday Soup Day, or something like that. I really don’t have a name for it yet, but during the next few months we are going to focus on soup every Monday.
We will cover soup recipes, tips, ideas, and even some soups that I have found from around the web. I will probably also share a few chili and stew recipes since they are soupish. (Okay, so soupish is not a word, but they are kind of soupish aren’t they?)
One of my favorite ways to cook soup is in the crockpot, so you will see lots of crockpot recipes. And I also plan to add tips about soups that freeze well.
I have even started a soup board on Pinterest.
So, I hope you all like soup as much as I do. (And for those of you that do not like soup, we will only be focusing on soups on Mondays, so the rest of the week will be full of other recipes, kitchen tips, and ideas.)
Today to start things off, I thought we would highlight a few of my family’s favorite soup recipes.
Homemade Panera Bread Tomato Soup
Slow Cooked Chicken Fajita Chili
What do you all think, do you like soup? Is soup day a good idea?
Soup is my favorite part of fall too!! We usually end up having soup at least twice a week until Summer hah!
Love soup! It is a great idea to have “soup-er” Mondays! I am looking forward to it for home schooling as well because Mondays are our project days and right now we are concentrating on cooking. Thanks for all the great recipes and tips!
Yes, awesome idea! I just bought the Taste of Home special Soups magazine. Tons of great recipes. And yesterday I made a beer cheese soup. That was delicious. I think that was from an old Taste of Home. I know you love Taste of Home too 🙂
Yes, I love TOH! I have so many of their soup recipes marked to try. 🙂
I love soup in cooler weather and definitely vote for Soup Day.
I love soup, probably more than the rest of my family. I’m fairly new to pintrest and will look for there.
How about Souper Monday 🙂
YES! LOVE Soup day!
sarah k. @ the pajama chef
great idea! i love the idea of “souper” monday that has been suggested above 🙂
I love soup– but I can never seem to follow a recipe for it! OTOH, it’s a GREAT way to use up leftovers and stuff in the pantry/freezer that needs to be used up!
Kim @ Eat What You've Got
I love soups also! Not only are they warm and filling, they are an excellent way to use up some left-overs.
I love fall/winter (pretty much the same season here in the south) because of the cooler weather and making soup. My son seems to love soups so far (he’s 2), and I think that Chicken Queso Soup is one my husband would enjoy as well. I can’t wait to try it!
Tammy @ Skinny Mom's Kitchen
I am also a HUGE soup fan!! My menu plan over the next couple weeks includes at least one soup a week. I am making a tuscan bean soup this week and an italian mb soup next week. Both of them are slow cooker recipes. Can’t wait!
Amy @ MomsToolbox
I am so excited about this new series!
I love soups but am lost looking for new ideas.. THANK YOU!!!
You will save my Weight Watcher self and keep me eating delicious soups, I just know it!! YAY!!
YES PLEASE!!! On the soups. Love soup. Just printed off a couple you have listed on this page. Can’t wait to try them. My husband and I eat low carb, due to his diabetes, and soup is a great way to do that. THANKS!!
Awesome! I just followed you on Pinterest.
We actually have a free video class on Facebook on broth and soup-making. It’s focused more on the process rather than recipes, so you can apply it to any of the recipes you have. Check it out if you’re interested:
Awesome idea!! I would love to expand my soup recipes this fall!
LOVE the idea. I never ate soups growing up, but my husband loves them. I have grown more and more to love them too. But I have so few recipes! I am stoked about Soup Monday!!
Looking forward to your “Soup Mondays”. I think it’s a great idea, and something I want to incorporate into our own weekly meals.
I was just thinking about buying a soup cookbook! I am so excited that you are doing this!!!!!!!
I like the idea of Soup Monday. I just love homemade soups. Nothing is more comforting than a bowl of hot , steamy homemade soup on a Michigan winter evening. Just add a bread or biscuit for “sopping up” and you got the best comfort food I can think of. Looking forward to it.
Love the idea!! Soups are a staple in our house during the colder months.
