Question of the Day #473

It's a dark, cloudy day in LA and B and I are just waiting for the clouds to explode rain. In anticipation, we decided to make soup with what we had in the house. We browned some stew meat, added carrots, celery, onions, garlic, tomatoes, beef stock and some seasonings. Now we'll let it cook low and slow, add some lentils and wait until the beef falls apart.

Soup is good food.

What's your favorite soup?



  1. Tomato Soup... but then I make Saltine-Peanut Butter Crackers and drop them in for a few seconds and scarf.

    Guess my taste buds never really grew up since kindergarten.

  2. Funny about your weather, because today it felt like spring (kinda sorta) in NJ. It was as sunny as can be, almost 50 degrees, and snow melting like crazy.

    I agree that soup is GREAT food. It is wonderful and comforting in cold weather. When it snows I love to stay in all day and cook a soup low & slow. Soup is also a savior when losing weight. I eat soup almost every day.

    My favorite though would be split green pea with ham.

  3. It's brisk here, and I made soup out of chicken bones, carrots, onions, celery and crookneck squash with some egg noodles. Yum. I am warm and cozy with my soup.

  4. Coconut! I recently discovered this heavenly treat & it is SOOOO yummy!

  5. Always read stuff that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it.............................................

  6. mmmm...mmmm...good, indeed! :)

    My favourite is cream of mushroom, with gi-normous chunks of mushrooms.

    Although, I make a wicked french onion soup made with beer that would be a very close runner up.

  7. french onion with lots of cheese on top
    or chicken noodle

  8. I love Soooooo many soups. I have made an artichoke/shrimp soup "to die for", a sausage/ chickpea thing and so many more. The fun of soup is that you can literally see what you have and then make one up! as long as you "kindof" know what blends with what.
    Experimentation is the key!

  9. Potato-Bacon soup, which I think I'm making today in the crock-pot.

    I'd love to hear Beck's recipe for Coconut Soup!

  10. Hi Suzanne,
    My favorite is homemade tomato, starting with a qt. jar of home canned tomatoes. I make a paste with a generous slab of butter melted over medium heat, stirring in flour, then gradually adding the milk (whole and raw if available) and continuing to stir over low heat until you have a nice creamy white sauce, then all you have to do is add a bunch of chunked onions, the jar of tomatoes and s&p to taste. YUMMY
