Soup's On!

I wish I had learned earlier in life just how easy it is to make soup.  The first time I ever made soup wasn't until I was living on my own for the first time.  Up to that point I thought making soup involved dumping a can of Campbell’s Alphabet soup into a pan and heating it up on the stove.

Early on in my living on my own days I invited my parents over for Thanksgiving dinner.  Afterwards I was left with a lot of turkey- too much turkey.  It was then that I discovered a recipe in an old cookbook.  The recipe was for “Leftover Turkey Soup.”

It was pretty easy.  I used the carcass of the turkey to make the soup broth.  After the broth was done I added onions, carrots, celery and noodles.  A few spices were added and before long I was enjoying a delicious bowl of soup.

Since then I’ve made all kinds of soup.  Recently I made a big pot of chicken noodle soup.  It was the perfect meal on a cold, snowy day.


  1. You can never go wrong with chicken soup!

  2. Today is a soup kind of day. A big pot of my mom's potato soup with saltines would be so good!

  3. Yum - this post has me contemplating soup for dinner!
