Watching the Weather Channel lately has been a chilling experience (pun intended!). The whole northern hemisphere is covered with feet and/or meters of snow and torrential rains that are making people stay indoors a lot these days (thanks to Ms Stewart for her recipes).
I believe there is nothing better when the cold hit than a delicious cup of soup that will warm you up all the way down to your toes. One of the best recipes is a bowl of comforting homemade Chicken Noodle Soup. My best advice is to make your own chicken stock but if you are planning to use store bought stock, look for the one that has the least amount of sodium (find this information on the Nutritional Facts).
I love Butternut Squash Soups because fall and winter are the best times to eat them as they are in season and you not only get them at the best price but you also can buy the best quality. If you feel adventurous you can always replace the butternut for pumpkin, calabaza or acorn squash. Additionally for garnish I like to use sage leaves and a dash of nutmeg.
Every time I eat a French Onion Soup I wish I was sitting at a beautiful cafe in Paris feeling like a classy lady - the only difference is that I will ask just for an onion soup and ommit the Frech past... ha! Although this soup takes a bit longer to cook that other ones it can be a very comforting thing to dig into that gratinated chees and soaked bread.
Have a great day and to those weathering the stroms plase keep safe!

When I saw the Butternut squash soup I thought yes, I'll make that tonight but the French Onion sounds so good. I've never made FOnion before so that might be the one to tackle. It's not freezing here in Phoenix but cold enough for soup to sound delish.ReplyDelete

OMG, butternut squash soup...That mug of deliciousness looks SO good!ReplyDelete
Mmm, what wonderful dinner inspiration! San Francisco may be snow free, but it's definitely perfect soup weather! Butternut squash is one of my absolute favorites, especially spiced up with a little curry powder!ReplyDelete
Love soups on a cold day! Especially chicken noodle soup. Incidentally, that seems to be the only thing I can eat now that I got my wisdom teeth out...ReplyDelete

There really is nothing like soup to warm you up on a cold day. I've never made my own chicken noodle (I need to do that ASAP), but I make a butternut squash soup regularly which I adore (so much, in fact, I have a hard time sharing it with people).ReplyDelete
Hard to image craving soup as we're in the middle of summer...ReplyDelete
But the first image, in particular, looks pretty delish!
