Since the canned cream of mushroom soup you can buy in the store is 1) too expensive, in my opinion and 2) has MSG in it, I've taken to making my own, using Amy's fabulous recipe. I actually don't cook a lot with cream of mushroom soup, so I have just been whipping up a batch when I want to Spinach Souffle.
Until now, that is. Last week I had leftover soup, and Andrew and I decided to each serve up a bowl to go along with dinner. We threw in some baked chicken and wow! This soup is making it into the regular rotation....so creamy and flavorful! And frugal to boot. :)
Some other favorite soups for Fall/Winter:
My Momma's Chili
New Brunswick Stew
Black Bean Soup
Chicken Noodle Soup
Coconut Curry Chicken Soup (I want to try Sarah's recipe!)
With all of that said, I should have looked at the forecast before deciding on this week's menu plan, since it's supposed to get up to the 80s again during the day! Boo. Ah well, we'll eat soup and pretend it feels like fall. Sometimes it's the best a Floridian can do.
Breakfasts: cold cereal, yogurt, eggs
Lunches: leftovers, sandwiches
Tuesday--Sticky Chicken with Carrots and Rolls
Wednesday--Cream of Mushroom Soup (w/Chicken!), Broccoli, and Biscuits
Thursday--Chili with cornbread, pumpkin cake for dessert (recipe later today!)

What's your favorite soup recipe? I would love to add some new soups to our family's repertoire.
