Soup Season

Soup season is almost here!  It's something I've really missed this summer!  I think I've decided that August is my favorite month now.  It's cool in the mornings, hot during the day, and chilly at night.  That's a perfect combination in my book!  I don't remember August being so lovely before.

We're kicking off soup season tonight with French Onion Soup.  My 12-year old kid who eats practically nothing actually loves this soup!  He's been begging for it since early July.  I'm not quite sure what the other kids will eat tonight...

Other soups I've been missing are Chicken Paprikash, Chicken Tortilla, Broccoli Cheese, Beef Stew, and Chili.  (Is Chili a soup?  It is in my book because it's served in a bowl.)  Chili is the only soup recipe I don't have here on my blog.  There's really not much to it but I will add it the next time I make it.

So, have I gotten you in the mood for a good soup for dinner?  We will serve ours with a nice salad using lettuce from the garden and big, red tomatoes.  Mmm.....now I'm craving soup for breakfast!  I have a problem.

Every winter I start to get excited for grilling and at the end of summer I look forward to Soup Season! Nothing like a pot of soup on the stove!

I love soup too, can't wait for it to cool down here for that very same reason. :)I'll be trying the onion recipe.
