I love cool days.
I love leaves changing from vibrant green to orange, yellow and red.
I love decorating my house with pumpkins, gourds and leaves.
And I LOVE the return of soup to my meal plans.
There is nothing quite so cozy as a meal of hot soup on a cold fall (or winter) day.
(Do you see where this is heading?)
I am perfectly happy to fix a pot of soup (there are so many to choose from) at least once a week when the days turn colder. I have my favorites that make their way to our table with regularity (one I am sharing below), BUT I also love to try new concoctions.
So, What is your favorite soup? Would you share the recipe with me (please, please, please)?
(I'm also looking for a really good Chili recipe - any thoughts? Amber did you discover any good ones from your blog post?)
Here is one of my favorite soups (I shared this on Jami's blog a few weeks ago, but it is THAT good):
Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup
Ingredients: 1 (6 oz) pkg. chicken and wild rice mix; 5 cups water; 2 medium carrots, shredded; 2 tsp. dried minced onion; 1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese, cubed; 1 can cream of chicken soup; 2 c. cooked cubed chicken
Directions: In a large saucepan, combine rice, contents of seasoning packet. and water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in the carrots and onion. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in cream cheese until melted. Stir in soup and chicken and cook until heated through. Yields 6 servings.
So, what is your favorite?
