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!
