What I am Loving- The Soup Edition

The weather is certainly starting to get colder up here in Minnesota!  As I am looking out the window this morning it looks like today is going to be another chilly grey day.  These cold gloomy days are perfect for a great cup of coffee, a warm bowl of oatmeal, a fuzzy blanket, sitting by the fireplace and warm thick soups!  When the weather starts to turn chilly I find myself wanting one thing and one thing only (well besides oatmeal) soup.  With the endless flavor combinations its hard for me to get sick of eating soup!  My favorite soups are thick ones loaded with tons of veggies and flavors.  One great thing  about soup is you can add and substitute things to a recipe to suit your taste.  Not to mention if you make a big batch of soup you can eat the leftovers for days!   I thought today would be the perfect day to share my absolute favorite soup recipes, you know the ones I come back and make time and time again! 

Ravioli Soup

Pumpkin and Black Bean Soup
BBQ Chicken Soup-A favorite when with Mark

And the recipe hasn't been posted yet but my moms vegetable soup is always a must for a chilly day.  Her homemade vegetable soup brings me back to chilly winter evenings.  You know the kind of winter evening where you stand there watching the snow fall and hoping it will fall all night (because then you might get a snow day)!

Here are a few other favorite soups I have tried and some links to more fabulous soup recipes!
Lentil and Chicken Soup-Skinny Taste
Butternut Squash Soup with Sage-Skinny Taste
I pinned this last night-25 Soups and Stews for Fall

As always remember to live Happily Ever Healthy!

  7. Oh my gosh, this all sounds so foreign to me! It's finally mid 80's here (though they say it will be back in the 90's by the weekend...) and do we're all finally feeling fall. :) Soups are so wonderful. I have a few go-to recipes that we live on all winter. Taco soup is our favorite!! Enjoy your chilly day!

  11. Ooh, Ravioli Soup sounds great! It reminds me of this recipe that I've been meaning to try for ages now:

  12. I saw that recipe the other day on pinterest! I have been wanting to make a lasagna soup for the longest time now. The only problem was that they were all high in fat and calories. I was overjoyed when I found the lighter recipe! If you make it you will have to let me know how it is!
