Winter Soups

Ahhh, Winter is coming! Once the weather turns cold, I pull out my big soup pot and start creating. I never use a recipe, because for me, making soup is a natural, instinctual thing. For some reason it comes easy to me, where baking or cooking other things is a bit more challenging for me.

One of my passions is making soup and I love the feeling of food simmering on the stove all day. The smell in the house is so yummy and cozy! I also love that the kids enjoy cutting vegetables to go into it.
I also love that if someone stops by for a visit I can offer them a bowl! In fact, my sweet friend Jill came over the other day and it was cool to nurture her with a bowl of hot soup. It is so nice to be able to give the gift of a warm, full belly to our friends when they come to spend time with us.
Here is some yummy soup that I made a few days ago. It is Vegetable-Chicken Soup.

I want to come over to your house now. My grandmother was the same way with soup. She had 7 children, and was used to cooking for a ton of people. Then, in her old age, my poor grandmother would make a big pot of soup like this and eat the soup, and nothing else for three days. Same if someone came over to share it.
