Poll for a cold, windy, day

by Cindi Haynes / October 24, 2005 3:40 AM PDT

I just made a huge pot of potato soup. Boy it's yummy, if I do say so myself. Cream of Leek is another one I'm known for.

What's your favorite soup?

Too many to name

I could really go for a hearty chili about now but another I like is just a plain old ham/bean (using pintos) soup with a big chunk of corn bread right in the middle after a long hike in the snow. Yummy. Happy

Homemade oxtail, chicken, or beef vegetable

But....a huge bowl of homemade chili works just as well for me on dreary days like today. I usually make a vat full and freeze in smaller containers all of the above choices. If I'm gonna cook, I cook for an army so I don't have to make small portions just for me. Some things just haven't changed much even with nobody around anymore.....an my cooking habits is one of them.

iamke this soup that I love
by Rick S / October 24, 2005 3:56 AM PDT

is basically a box or two of instant scalloped potatoes, cream of whatever is your favorite cream of soup and then you add cocktail sausages. It's great to add lots of pepper and whatever else you like.

Don't have it very often but it's one of those great warm you foods that is a snap to make.

Does indeed sound good.

Lots of fat and salt, though. Hope Dr. Bill isn't lurking.

That depends.

When I haven't been feeling well, chicken rice from a can - the condensed kind that calls for a can of water added. I reckon that is my all-time favorite.

My home made vegetable beef is a winner. Happy (If stew beef didn't cost so much, I'd make it more often. In a pinch, I'll cut up a chuck roast. Maybe.)

Split pea can hit the spot.

I like soup in general.

One of my warmest memories is especially how Chris and Samantha liked it!

The peanut butter pie you made finished it off quite well!

Wick Fowler;s 2-Alarm Texas Chili
by John Robie / October 25, 2005 2:57 AM PDT

for a cold day. Right now for just a mild cool night & room temp during the day outside, a good Brown & Bag stew with pot roast, potatoes, carrots, celery, onions, garlic, canned beef broth, salt & pepper, making enough for two+ meals for 2.

Wife does make outstanding veg soup (with excellent meat) to go with some cool weather.

Pot of pinto or navy/white beans, soaked, cooked just right goes good on chill days.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
