107. holiday tortellini soup

Recipe source: Taste of Home

Mmmmm … This is a delicious soup recipe, and it’s super easy to throw together. I made this last year on Christmas Eve, and BP requested it again.

It tastes wonderful on a cold December evening. With pasta, cheese, tomatoes and bacon, you really can’t go wrong.

97. cauliflower soup

This is perfection on a cold fall evening. And a great way to use carrots that are still hanging out in your garden.

It just screams for a nice crusty baguette to go along with it, but I didn’t think of it until I was already home from work, and I didn’t want to venture back out to the grocery for a $1.29 baguette.

BP and I both had second helpings of this, and we’re looking forward to leftovers tomorrow … and probably the next night, too. (There’s only two of us. We can only eat so much soup.)

93. slow cooker chicken taco soup

Another good meal for a cool fall day.

I thought the flavor of the beer came through too strong, so next time I might use half beer and half chicken broth, or all broth. (I had a bottle of beer in the refrigerator that my dad left there a while back, and I was tired of it taking up space. Neither BP nor I actually drink beer, so I was glad to get rid of it.)

92. baked potato soup

With cool weather comes soup season!

This was very similar to Bob Evans’ cheddar potato soup.

BP ate it right up, and he doesn’t even mind the leftovers. Nor do I. Nothing like a hot bowl of potatoes and cheese to warm you up.

89. taco soup

(This recipe is very similar: Allrecipes.com. I did not use onion or green onion.)

Minimal ingredients, one-pot cooking and quick = perfect weeknight supper.

This was really good. You could add more spice to it if that’s your style. Mine was fairly mild.

87. tomato basil soup

The other day, BP brought home a bushel basket full of Roma tomatoes from his garden. That is a lot of Romas.

We decided to make tomato soup with them – so that I could eat it for lunch during the winter. BP doesn’t eat tomato soup, at all. But I think he really wanted to use our new food grinder attachment for the KitchenAid stand mixer, so it was a good excuse for him to test it out for the first time.

As you can see, he was thrilled with the results. Even I was impressed. Put your tomatoes in one end of this little gadget, and out from the other end comes a bowl of nice, smooth juiced tomatoes. The “guts” plop out from a little hole in the side. If we’d have had this when we made our spaghetti sauce, things would have gone much more quickly.

Anyways, I now have eight pints of tomato soup (plus more in freezer bags) waiting in the pantry!

37. vegetable dumpling soup

This was pretty good, though, it could have used a little more flavor. A little salt and pepper helped immensely.

I did try to reduce the amount of sodium in the recipe by using dried great northern beans, rather than canned. It was the first time I’d ever used dried beans, and I learned that the minimum 6-8 hours of soaking time is really not long enough. In the future, I will put them in water to soak overnight and during the day.
