It’s Time For Soup!

The holidays are over, it’s cold outside, and so it’s time for soup.  Nothing warms a body up like a hot bowl of homemade soup. January is National Soup Month and it couldn’t come at a better time.

Do you have fond memories of a favorite soup, simmering on the stove with the smell welcoming you into the house like a big hug?  Is it vegetable, chicken, or maybe chili?  Are there special events you have celebrated with soup?

The origins of soup are as old as mankind, probably dating back to the Neolithic Age.  Early man used soup to stretch his food supply and to help survive harsh winters when fresh food was not available.  Historically, soup has been used to strengthen people who were ill and to help families stretch their food budgets.

So get out those cookbooks.  Whip up a big pot of your favorite soup to chase away the cold weather.  Go ahead and look for something new, something you haven’t tried before and see if you can find a new favorite soup.
