Happy Fall Y’all – Day 6 – Soup

SoupEven though it is Fall in Texas that does not mean it is cool or cold.  This morning it is 48 but by the evening we are looking at a high of 81.  One of my favorite things about Fall – homemade soups.  I can’t wait to be able to have soup for dinner.  I do the same thing in the Summer – can’t wait for salads.

So until I can actually make some soups I have been looking for soup recipes to start buying ingredients and be ready for that next cold snap.  When it arrives I’ll make a double patch and take one over for my son and daughter-in-law who are in the throws of taking care of a baby born with EB.

For the next few days I am going to add some soup recipes.

I found this recipe which is interesting and believe me I don’t like turnip greens, but my husband does.  This one was  at http://www.margaretholmes.com/recipes/details/turnip-green-soup/ and will be the first one I will try.  Not sure I can find that brand of greens here in Texas.  I’ve seen them in Alabama, but any should do that are seasoned.  I think my husband will love this.  I will be posting pictures later in October/November and what I think about this soup.

Turnip Green Soup

1 can chicken broth
