Soup weather


Cold weather is soup weather at our house.  We enjoy a variety of homemade soups throughout the season.




Readers here know I've been furnishing the River House with colorful china from thrift shops.   I easily covered the basics but will  still add something it it is colorful and a little different.  That's why I bought this soup bowl for $1.69 when I spotted it.



When I got the bowl home I filled it with one of our winter favorites, mushroom barley soup.  Those orange flecks in the soup are carrots  -  something we add to the basic recipe just to sweeten it up a bit.

Do you have a favorite soup?  A favorite bowl to put it in?

  1. It's been a long time since I've used barley. I'm adding it to my shopping list now!

    If you have a Dollar Tree near by, they have some really cute bowls, cups, plates, etc. for $1.00 each. Not vintage, but some designs actually look vintage.

  2. That sounds good! We love all kinds of soup here. We just had Senate Navy Bean Soup this week.

  3. What a pretty bowl! I like bean soups. Any kind, really, white beans and lentils -I count them as beans ;) - that's what I'm thinking of right now.

  4. Homemade split pea. Always put a pot on to cook on the woodstove as soon as our power goes out. By the time we're ready to eat, it's ready.

  5. Looks yummy, and I love the vintage bowl.
    Any homemade soup.....except for split pea....is my favorite. I make a lot of soups in the winter, usually with left overs from dinner plus some fresh veggies.

  6. That is a gorgeous soup bowl, which will match in with the other pieces you have previously shown us. Nothing beats homemade soup in the cold weather. We like a basil, pumpkin, carrot, tomato no-fat recipe I have made for years. Never tire of it!
