Food Monday ~ Soups revisited.

Last Monday I gave you my latest attempt at Soup making and Wisewebwoman commented: “I was on the point of digging around for your recipe!” This gave me an idea….

As the days shorten and the weather turns cold, there is nothing better than a bowl of good soup to warm the cockles of your heart. Living alone, I find cooking for one frustrating, almost soul destroying, after all I did grow up in a household of hungry men with hollow legs!

Nowadays I cook soups and stews for four six people, eat one portion that day, cool and portion the remainder for the freezer. It means that on any busy day I have a good home-made meal at the ready to enjoy without all the work! 😀

The following is a list with links to all the soups I have shared since 2008. If you make one a week, they will keep you going until February next year!

A wide necked Thermos like food and drinks flask is perfect for bringing hot soup to work for a cheap and wholesome lunch.

    What a great idea, I’m dying to try all of them but guess what? I need a password to wordpress to get into your links.

    Can you (or genius Elly – hi Elly!) sort this out?

    WWW – Sorry you had a problem with my links. I re-did them, so hopefully they should work for you now. Enjoy!

    I was just about to write to you about the WP password problem… I am signed in as WordPress & still couldn’t get in! Glad they are all fixed now… Will have to recategorise them into vegetarian or not 🙂

    Your soup recipes may find a way to my kitchen soon, GM. I will put up a post on Friday to reveal the ‘secret.’

    Warren – Good chicken soup is real comfort food!

    Barbara – Found out again for my lack of backroom skills on the blog! At least I managed to sort it out.

    Maxi – I am intrigued.

    I’m thrilled with these links! We don’t have any cool weather even yet, but I’m hungry for soup. And I am cooking for my father who is on a very restricted diet because of a swallowing issue…but soups are great! I can almost guarantee I’ll make each one. What a treat. Debra

    Debra – Soups are a wonderful way to give a nutritious meal to an invalid. You will find a variety of taste and colour above.
