I love when the nights start to get cooler and the weather begins to cool. One thing I love about it is the types of food many of us tend to cook. I love homemade soup! Even canned soup is good on a cold, fall day. Do you like soup? What's your favorite type and flavor?

It's hard to choose but I think I would have to say beef barley homemade soup would be #1. When the weather is cool we have the wood stove going and I can put a pot on the stove all day to cook. So on goes the soup pot and the longer it cooks the better it tastes! Oh YUM! And to go with it I love homemade potato rolls! OK, now I really am

What kinds of soupd do you like?

I like taking a good size beef chuck roast and browning it  in a skillet and then putting it in the oven surrounded with lots of onions carrots and celery and potatoes and then slowing roasting it, after about an hour I pour in enough water to not quite cover the beef roast completely, and then  let it go another hour, then take it out, pour all the juice into the crock pot, cut up the roast and the vegetables and throw them in, add a can of beef broth( if there is not enough from the roaster pan) and a couple cans of V8 Vegetable juice and pack or two of frozen mixed soup  vegetables  and let it slow cook in the crock pot for a few hours, and then add the barley  after it has cooked for a while it is SOUP TIME!! Your home made potato rolls with lots of butter on them would go great with this! I normally buy potato bread at the store and just put lots of butter in it and eat it with the soup.

 The other soup I make is chili, I use a pound of 85% lean ground beef and a pound of Bob Evans or Jimmy Deans or what ever brand of original sausage, I fry them  up really good with lots of diced onions and garlic ( til the meat gets a lit brown crisp on its  edges)  then I put it all in a crock pot (( I also put some water in the skillet and stir it around to get all the meat juices and then add that to the pot) then I put in a couple cans of rinsed off dark red  Kidney beans, and a couple three cans of dice tomatoes with green chilles, and a couple of cans of stewed tomatoes, and couple of cans of V8 vegetable juice and a can or two of V8 mild Picante  Juice, add some  chilli powder, and let it slow cook in the crock pot till your ready to eat!

Both of these soups are great when the fall weather get here and the air gets that nip to it!

Can you tell I Love food! yeah

Dear Chutz,
       Creamed green chili chicken stew & corn bread! But! I used to Looove beef stews to! Sadly, every single time I try my meat ends up dry and chewy! Or just "shredds". Often the stock will smell delicious! but then taste like cardboard? Spent a long time trying.. Maybe I should try again. Esp while I recover could help to keep my mind off things  :-)

Mmmm, I love soup! I think tomato basil is my favorite, but chicken noodle soup, french onion soup, clam chowder (both new england & manhattan) & lobster bisque are up there too!

I love soup, too. In fact, with my weird innards giving me quirky cravings a lot, I eat soup for breakfast many mornings!

Right now I have a big batch of pasta e fagioli soup in the fridge that I made this week. With some good crusty bread - yum!

hmm..I'm not much of a soup person, but you all make it sound amazing! :-)

I have to confess...I do get a craving for cheesy potato soup from time to time (thick and warm, bacon and chives on top) yum

So, its completely not healthy but oh so good!
