    Winter is Coming! (Soup Thread)

    Even though it was 90 degrees here today I still associate certain months as soup months. I have my favorites I cook every year, but tonight i decided to search Youtube for new ones to try. And, I am betting there are a lot of great soups I am missing so I thought this would be a good topic. Who doesn't love soup?

    So, what soups do you cook and what condiments/sides do you love with your favorite soup?

    Here are two of the soups I found on YT that I am definetley going to make.

    Hamburger/cabbage/potato soup
    I make cabbage soup a lot and occasionally make hamburger soup, but I have never combined the two.



    I like barley soup, but I can not remember ever eating lentil soup so...

    Had homemade chicken soup today. Will have split pea with ham in a few weeks. (after bird day).

    Probably make some chili soon, I consider it a soup.

    Some day might try a cioppino, But so much easier to order in a restaurant.

    We have soup several times a week here. I make them all - not canned.

    1. Chuck roast simmered 6 hours or so in the Insta Pot with a can of beef broth. At the end add a small can of tomato sauce, frozen pictsweet soup vegetables (frozen). Take out the chuck before adding the other stuff and remove as much of the fat as you want to remove.
    Variations :
    *add a couple tablespoons of butter added at the end.
    *add heavy cream to make it a creamed soup added at the very end.

    *add a can of Rotel tomatoes and green chiles (I use Hatch but you can't get hatch brand everywhere)
    *diced sweet potato added at the beginning.

    2. The same soup can be made in less than 30 minutes on stove top using hamburger instead of chuck. Don't add the sweet potato if you are doing the 30 minute version.

    3. Green bean potato soup: tiny new potatoes, fresh or frozen green beans, hamburger, onion, butter, garlic (optional)

    4. White beans, onions, butter, sliced kielbasa.

    5. Bean soup: canned pintos, small can of tomato sauce, Rotel tomatoes and green chiles, garlic, onions. It's a thin soup, not a chili.

    Cheap and easy "oyster stew" (at least, I call it that) One can of clam chowder, one can of smoked oysters and maybe 2 Tblspns of real butter, do not drain the smoked oysters, toss that oil in there. Best eaten with fresh biscuits. Cheap and good and quick.

    Hey Retiredat50 we might see lows in the 60's soon, time to wash winter clothes!

    I can not eat canned soup anymore, they are all so nasty. The veggies are mush, the meat is weird and they are full of salt and no taste.

    Your green bean and potato soup sounds like a serious winner to me. When I get fresh green beans on sale I love to make a pot of boiled green beans and potatoes and when drained but still hot add in cooked bacon, sometimes I add diced tomatoes or just have sliced tomatoes on the side with it.

    Hey Retiredat50 we might see lows in the 60's soon, time to wash winter clothes!
    I can't, I just can't! I do not like fish or seafood and clam chowder makes me gag. Now, raw oysters on the half shell, that I can do. Just add some Tobasco, a squirt of lemon and then knock it back. Of course, the only thing you taste is Tobasco, lemon and salt Oh, and oyster shooters which is the same but in a shot glass with vodka.

    I spent about 5 years in Ohio before coming back here to Florida, and the winter before I came back we had days that it was -18 degrees and the windchill took it down to -40 or so. Oh, and that windchill thing is real, it can make you feel frozen no matter how many layers you wear. So cold that it starts to feel like your skin is burning.

    But, no winter clothes for me. I own nothing other than shorts, t-shirts, tanks tops sandals and one pair of sneakers.
