By November the cold weather is setting in, along with the rain and dark skies in the morning and early evening. It's at this time that I really feel the urge to bake and make warm meals for dinner, like soup.
In the summer I try to find ways to eat light with salads, fresh fruits, herbs and vegetables. In the late fall and winter, I find that soups are a way to have a light, healthy meal.
There's nothing like a chicken dinner with stuffing and mashed potatoes. Afterward, we boil the chicken carcass and use the left over chicken to make chicken pot pie and chicken soup. We also love pumpkin soup, and a family favourite from The Best of the Bridge series is good old hamburger soup. Soup is very easy to freeze, so I often make double and freeze some for another meal.
What the kids really love is to make is hot biscuits to dip in their soup.
I made up some recipe cards and hope to print them very soon.
I also wanted to mention that a good friend of mine just started her own blog, and guess what she talks about in her first post? Amy's organic tomato bisque soup. Have a look! It's called flutterflutter.
Have a cozy weekend, perhaps with some soup sipping!
