Soup Weather

i have a stick blender

It's finally cool enough for soup, sweaters and socks. I'm soaking it up, one bowl of soup at a time. On the menu this week: potato leek soup; white bean, sausage and greens; lentil soup with wild rice; soupy red beans and rice.

gluten free egg noodles

And now that I've discovered a recipe for gluten free egg noodles, we'll definitely be making chicken noodle soup.

What's in your stock pot?

  2. mmm, we made split pea soup this weekend and last week it was all about risotto.
    I love comfort food!

  3. Oh my, me too! And I swear by it. I can make carrot soup in under an hour with no cream. And corn chowder, no problem. One of my favorite things.
    Um...are you giving us recipes or what?
    Love your apron. xo tara

  5. These soups sound delicious. I've never made my own noodles before and am intrigued! I have black-eyed susan dye in my stock pot. I've been dyeing yarn.

  6. Oh, most certainly beans from the farmer's market! Not a week goes by where we don't have beans or split peas. Slightly mash them (after cooking) with sea salt and lime-infused macadamia nut oil and they're the tastiest things ever.

    Today, though, I made pumpkin chocolate chip circles, a pumpkin pie for my husband, and tonight I am making tarragon salmon and a zucchini yak bison loaf. Can't wait!

  7. The soup that Jennifer of JC Handmade had on her blog (last week I think). Vegetable soup. So, so good too. It is definitely soup weather here.

  8. You know fall has arrived when the stock pot comes out from the back of the cupboard. Yesterday was creamy wild rice. Later this week, minestrone.

  11. Could not live without my stick blender, for that very reason.

  12. Now that's a fun bench monday!

    The weather sure has turned. Can you believe how hot we were in Berkeley just a few weeks back? Tomorrow night I'm making split pea soup. And I want a new pair of boots.

  13. I just made matzo ball soup tonight for dinner, it is so simple and yummy!

  14. It certainly is! We've already had a run of squash-apple soup and I have lentils sprouting for a simple lentil/greens/miso...
    and oh my, egg noodles are very high on my list of Things I Miss Since My Food Sensitivities Went Insane. Do let us know how they turn out!

  15. Niiiice Bench Monday! Last night I started out making soup with white beans but threw in some chicken at the end so it was a vegetable-chicken-white bean warming and lovely delight! I like your apron. : )

  16. oh YEAH! I made potato corn chowder last week to use up some aging fennel and the last of this season's corn that was getting kind of starchy. It was so good. And then tomato soup, because our garden was positively bursting with them and we were out of room in the freezer. I've got elk chili on the mind, and lentil soup. And maybe something with squash.

  17. We are finishing up some beef vegetable - do not ask me for the recipe 'cause Ronnie just wings it; some of this, some of that. Everything but the beef was from our garden - now that felt good!

  18. In the last two weeks I've made: roasted tomato, beef & barley, portugese bean soup, white bean and kale, spicy bean and bacon...I love soup! (I always make a double batch so I have some for the freezer).

    ReplyDelete
  19. We're having a week of soups, too: Sweet Potato Lentil (Sun); Pumpkin Black Bean (Mon); Tortellini (Tonight); Tomato (Wed); and Turkey Chili (Fri). (Thursdays we have leftovers).

    I love soup weather!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Potato Corn Chowder tonight, Beef Stew last weekend, and in the future Thai Pumpkin...mmmm, I love soup weather!
    Yes, your recipes would be lovely.

    ReplyDelete
  21. We had Tuscan bean and chard last night. And if our pullets would start laying (since our older ladies are molting), we would be churning out noodles to go with a stewed chicken. Until then, I'm thinking hot-and-sour and carrot ginger and borscht.

    Tis the season!

  22. As if there'd be something better for enjoying this time of year??
    I don't think so.
    I'm loving my crock-pot so I can get out there and rake me some leaves :)

  23. Hey I have that same set of mixing bowls. They were a wedding gift, circa 1979. I'm sorry I broke the largest making bread in the first five years of its life. Been searching second hand stores ever since. :)

  24. I know what you mean about soup weather. This weekend we did a crockpot roast and with the leftovers made a veggie beef soup. Hubby has already eaten half and the other half has gone in the freezer for the next set of cold days.

  27. I love my "wanda". I made carrot ginger soup yesterday at the women's shelter. and Roasted Tomato soup to serve with quinoa-yum. I too am thankful it's finally cooled off. Hopefully we'll get to grass valley soon to see some fall color. not much here in bay area.

  28. I've been enjoying your blog for a while now and I was wondering what determined you to switch to gluten free cooking?

  29. this homemade life - here's a link to the beginning of our journey into the world of gluten free living: http://foothillhomecompanion.blogspot.com/2009/03/our-food-journey-has-taken-interesting.html

    we're not completely gluten free (yet), but we've dramatically reduced gluten in our diets, as well as dairy and soy.

  30. we had (dairy-free) creamy broccoli soup tonight. calder digs it too which is nice. the first time we chose to call it "green bob marley soup" in order to get him interested. now... not a problem. and the other recent good soup was a pumpkin soup with honey and cloves. delicious!

  34. The girls have been sick, so it's been chicken soup, of course. Also, pumpkin muffins. I love it when it is cool enough to turn the oven on any time of day or have something bubbling on the stove.

  35. Pumpkin chili. My favorite fall food with lots of sour cream on top!

    ReplyDelete
  36. a lovely chicken and dumplings with herbed dumplings.....next week i am thinking sweet potato or pumpkin soup since texas is getting a cold front...going to be down to a frigid 72 degrees!!

  40. love the photo of you on the pot, as I scrolled down I got a little surprise :).
    And I adore your apron. Or maybe it's a dress, if so I adore it more.
    And you make me want to make soup, even though we're coming into summer.
