This time of year I LOVE making soups and stews. OK, truth be told come September I start the “I can’t wait to get into the kitchen and make soups!” This year I held off because we had a very warm September. Then I thought of this new challenge between my husband and I and it prompted me to gather 11 MUST Make Soups and Stews and make it happen!
So rewind a few weeks ago and I was on my fifth soup of the season, yes all of them a bit different. My kids had recently been sick and my husband and I caught what they had so it only seemed right to be making soup for another weekly Date Night. He was sick of it after a week. He got souped out. He also stated that sometimes Soups does not fill him up. Challenge accepted! I went on a search to all of my favorite foodie friends and found soups that I KNOW will fill him up and not only am I going to share each and every single of one of them with you all but I’m also going to make each and every one of them! I’m going to call it the Soup Challenge! First I’ll share them with you and follow along in the upcoming months with #soupchallenge as we get into the colder months and this Momma proves to her hubby that soup is filling!
