Food Goals 4: oy, that's a lot of soup.

by - February 12, 2016

All kinds of soups for you to sample today.  Reviews by the family are at the bottom

1) Provencal Vegetable: I stayed true to this recipe and it was awesome.

2) Winter Squash Soup: It made me happy to use some of our puréed pumpkin for this one

3) Mexican Soup: stayed true to recipe minus the jalapenos; just trying to keep it kid friendly.

4) Zucchini Vichyssoise: I went heavy on the zucchini and lighter on the potatoes.

The verdict:
Lucia LOVED the Mexican Soup and after devouring her bowl that night at supper, she requested it for a bedtime snack.
Willis loved the zucchini soup, which really surprised me.  I thought he would have picked the vegetable soup.
Aunty Monique thought the Mexican Soup was incredible.
Uncles Josh and Chris tried the zucchini soup and loved it, but they weren't allowed to complain because I said so.
My mom and dad loved the vegetable soup, but that's the only one they tried.
My favourite was the zucchini soup- I can't wait to do this one again in the fall when I have tons of zucchini from the garden.  
The least favourite for the kids was the squash soup, which is too bad because I kinda liked it.
Dan- I've stopped asking him because he only likes the desserts.

Have a great weekend!

  3. Oh Dan. No dessert for him until he eats all the soups. I used to make homemade soup a lot, but for some reason I haven't lately. Going to try all of these - I think the zucchini will be my favorite.

  4. I've never made soup. I'm super impressed!

  5. Gimme a soup over steak any day. Going to try the Mexican with jalapenos, please. Thank you for the inspiration.

  6. That zucchini, Mexican, and pumpkin soup intrigue me! I've always wanted to make my own soup. Good job!

  7. I love squash soup. They aren't big hits with our kids, though (mind you, I still make them eat it!). I like the looks of the zucchini soup. I definitely want to give that one a try! Dan cracks me up.

  8. I agree...and a soup party sounds awesome! I need to do that. My mom does pie parties...maybe I'll be the soup lady

  9. Making soups and fresh bread in the winter makes me very very happy.

  10. I agree...homemade soup is the best. I love the idea of a soup party. My mom used to do pie parties..maybe I'll be the soup lady.

  15. You are your abundance of zucchini's will have to try this or at least supply me with the zucchini.

  16. Soup is amazing. I need to go make soup now. Nathan has a "Soup Sisters and Broth Brothers" cookbook out of Calgary and it is awesome. Thanks for the motivation. I love that he only likes dessert. Dang men and their bionic metabolisms.

  17. intriguing book title. I'll have to check that one out. Maybe next winter will be the one with all the homemade soup

  18. I confess that I don't make soup very often. I'm always hungry later when I make soup for dinner! If they have some protein in them then I'm more likely to make it. I loved hearing the reports on all of them! I loved that Lucia wanted one for a snack! :)
