a Double Soup du Jour Day

Soup du Jour #7: Split Pea with Ham
Split peas, chicken broth, carrot/celery/onion/garlic in the processor, herbs from the garden, and a piece of leftover ham from the freezer.

Cooked until soft and pureed with a stick blender.

served with fabulous Potato Rosemary bread from Costco (still warm when I bought it!)

This tasted extra good this time, for some reason. Even the 6 yr. old loved it and she is not an adventurous eater! She says it should be called "Swamp Soup" because it looks like something Shrek would like to eat.

"Soup" du Jour #8

Also got some Turkey Chili ready for the crock-pot, with 5 kinds of beans. Not exactly soup but close enough!

2 kinds of soup ready for several dinners during the week.

We'll be having a holiday family get-together on the 27th where everyone brings a pot of soup to share....I can't wait to see how many kinds of soup we'll be having!

In case I haven't mentioned it before....I LOVE SOUP!

I wish I loved closer, we could have soup kitchen cookin' days together. I make soup at least once EVERY week of the year! ha!
