{Soup}er Saturday

The weather here is nutso lately. Snow one day, sunny and 50 degrees the next. So what to do with the lasting winter days but enjoy some delicious heartwarming soup. Soup is one of my favorite things in this world. We opened our 10 year time capsules in January and as answer to favorite food, I listed soup. Sad, but true. I have a thing for soup. So here are a few of my fave recipes to brighten up those overcast, snow covered days!

Corn and Shrimp Chowder and
Triple Cheese Flatbread
from Betty Crocker

Found this recently and the little guy had all the shrimp eaten out of his bowl before I got ours on the table. He loved it and ate every bite by himself which is saying something for him!

    Oo thanks for sharing. I’ll have to give them a try. One of my favs is Broccoli cheese soup with diced potatoes and shredded carrots in it!

    I don’t know what to say about the shrimp chowder. I never tried one before, but since I like shrimps, I guess I would enjoy this one too. My favorite is the wild rice soup and also the bacon cheeseburger one. Thanks for sharing them. I too have a thing for soups. Especially the creamy and thick ones.
