I was a pretty picky eater growing up, and soup was near the top of my do-not-touch food list. Thankfully, tastes change and over the years, soup has become one of my very favorite dinner items. It is the perfect companion for these rainy fall days. And to top if off, soup can be super economical, taking advantage of seasonal produce, inexpensive beans, and those random leftovers in your fridge. One pot can stretch into many meals, and the flavors taste even better over the next day or two!
This week I am sharing some of my favorite tried-and-true soup recipes. I don’t plan to make seven pots of soup/chili this week (although my husband wouldn’t complain), but hopefully this gives you some inspiration to try some new recipes (along with some side dish ideas). Share your favorite soups (with recipe links, if possible) in the comments section!
Here are some of my favorite soup menu plans:
Tuesday — Creamy Tomato Soup, grilled cheese sandwiches, sliced apples
Friday — Lentil Soup, Buttermilk Biscuits, coleslaw
Saturday — Mexican Chicken Soup, tortilla chips with guacamole & salsa
We’d love to feature some of YOUR menu plans! Go here to find instructions on how to submit your plan and have it published on Frugal Living NW!
What is for dinner at your house this week? Be sure to leave a link to any recipes in the comments!
