It's cold. Like LEGIT cold, like 40s-and-50s-at-night cold, which while yes, is not the Northeast, this is Texas. We are weak and we are cold.
So tonight, I'm making my most favorite stew, but I'm ready to get all semi-homemade up in here!
So here's some easy semi-homemade soups to get down with!
First, this Tuscan White Bean Soup from Williams Sonoma, which I enjoyed many times last winter. I like to add some delicious sausage balls, which I make from Jimmy Dean sausage. I just fry up the sausage balls and drop them in the soup. I also like to add chickpeas, or chicken and pasta. Delish! I'd also like to try these stew starters sometime soon!
I also made my first trip to Costco this weekend, and picked up some tortilla soup, which I added my new favorite tortilla chips to (Food Should Taste Good). I added some homemade guacamole, which I just make with some mashed avocados and some homemade pico de gallo (chopped tomatoes, jalapenos, green onions and garlic salt). Yum!
I also got some great Soup News this week -- one of my friends is having a SOUP PARTY! For which I am so excited, and will hopefully get some great soup recipes to share with you guys!
What are you fall favorites to cook? I'm on a perpetual quest for a good white bean soup, and all of the soups I made last year were kind of a bust. What say you? What are your favorite soups for fall?
