    I am SO thankful that my family loves soups, too! It all started when my friend said, "I have some chicken in the refrigerator. I think I'll make some chicken noodle soup." I had never made Chicken Noodle, so I kept thinking about it and then went to my pantry and lo-and-behold, I had the ingredients, too!

    I don't really have a recipe, but I can try:

    Chicken Noodle Soup

    about 2 cups of cooked chicken, chopped
    about 1 1/2 cups of chopped celery
    2 cups of chopped carrots
    1 medium onion, chopped
    about 12 cups of water
    4 tsp of chicken boullion
    1 bag of egg noodles

    Um . . . toss them all in, add salt and pepper to taste! How does that sound. Oh, make sure the noodles get cooked. Hee, hee!

    This recipe will make a huge pot, so I freeze the rest in single serving portions for lunches.

    I make baking powder biscuits with this, and the boys love it!

    Taco Soup

    Everyone has a Taco Soup recipe. Here's mine! (Modified a bit from the one my mother-in-law gave me!)

    In a large pot, brown 1 pound of ground beef. Drain fat and add:
    4 cups water
    1 16 oz. can tomatoes in water
    1 can corn (drained)
    1 can tomato soup
    1 can kidney beans (rinsed and drained)
    1 envelope taco seasoning
    1 clove garlic
    salt and pepper to taste

    Let it boil, then simmer for 15 minutes. Serve with cheese, chips and sour cream.

    We had chicken tortilla soup last night - - one of our faves:
    chicken (cooked about 2 breasts cubed)
    1 can c.o.mushroom soup
    chicken broth - however much feels right.
    1 onion
    1 can rotel

    Sweat onions until tender in a bit of olive oil. Add rotel & c.o.m. soup, add chicken. Slowly stir in chicken broth until you feel like you put enough in there. It's very scientific. Cook for a bit. Serve over tortilla chips w/ a bit o' cheese.

    ok, how absolutely weird is this? I had no idea that you could serve soup with tortilla chips .... that confuses me a little bit.

    we usually have soup with bread. Decadent white bread or yummy rye or whole wheat with lots of seeds in it, with REAL butter spread on top. I like my soup so thick, you should really just eat it with a knife and fork

    I have a decent lentil soup recipe. Like Christines, it's all very scientific
    grab a hold of about 5 cups of lentils, ideally you need to let it sit overnight, coverd in water. I usually forget this part, so just cook it into oblivion. Once it's nice and THICK I add some cubed tomatoes (usually a tin or so) some fried bacon bits, let it simmer for about another 20 minutes and voila! Oh, and somewhere you should add about 2 teaspoons of salt, which is probably not enough, as I'm not big on salt, DH always adds some more to his serving. oh, and you can add some worcestershire sauce after you dished up, just a couple of drops

    LOL, Maz We serve lot of soup over broken tortilla chips. The soup softens them up and they are just yummy!

    I am a HUGE fan of Cream of Tomato Soup (Homemade!) Woolworths (almost like WholeFoods) carried the BESTEST Tomato Soup! lol! Uhhhm Craving that now! but I can share a hearty and yummy soup...Kidney Bean Soup.

    You need a packet of sugar beans/kidney beans soaked overnight.

    1 Packet of Bacon
    Stewing Beef/Lamb
    Onion
    Potatoes
    Carrots
    1 Stock Cube

    Boil the Beans until tender (about an hour +). Meanwhile fry the bacon and onions, add the meat and brown. Add your chopped potatoes and carrots, stock cube and water (oh and the beans!) and let it go for a few hours. You can add some tomato paste and marjoram near the end and a dash of sugar and some salt and pepper...all to taste!

    DH loves to eat it with fresh baked bread and apricot jam...and I must say it is very yummy and perfect for winter!
