How To Stay Warm in Minnesota... Eat Soup!

Minnesota is having the perfect weather right now.  The mornings are a bit chilly, the afternoons warm up nicely to a sunny70 degrees (no humidity) and the evenings cool off, which to me is the perfect soup eating weather!

 Well, when my mom and I began tossing dinner ideas around, there was no doubt in my mind that I wanted soup.

Now for me, the hard part is always figuring out which kind of soup I am actually hungry for.  The fact that I landed on wanting soup for dinner was a bit scary, usually I take forever to decide on dinner!  I am the type of person that will crave something one minute and the next minute I have changed my mind to something completely opposite!  Sometimes there is no pleasing me.  When there is this type of decision that needs to be made, I am the type of person that likes to turn to a good old cookbook.  And my mom has about a million cookbooks, and in no time I had a spread of her coobooks out, covering the kitchen island.  I mean we had Taste of Home

The Mayo Clinic and William Sonoma Cook Book 

and a trillion other William Sonoma ones.  
To be honest I have the hardest time looking through cookbooks, because of all the wonderful pictures.  I mean you can get hungry just flipping through a cookbook.  If only I could make my pictures look like a cook book!
