Fall is seriously one of my most FAV seasons! I ♥ all things Fall: pumpkin everything, falling leaves, cooler temps, turkey, harvest, fall parties, cinnamon, apples pies, etc.
Took this pic this past weekend-- wish I could have done the beauty justice... Just can't seem to capture the awesome prettiness of it. Who else loves Fall???
Another thing especially about Fall that I ♥ is... it makes me want to cook more!!!
Especially hearty soups!
Here's one of my favorites: Never the Same Twice Soup
I kinda borrowed the name from a dear friend of mine that entitles his chili "Never the Same Twice Chili". Whereas my chili is nearly always the same with little variation (I found what I like!-- and I can't believe I haven't posted about it yet!!! I just realized this!!! Oh my, I have GOT to fix that!!! Ya'll need my "Mezzo Farte" chili recipe!!! It's a family fav and won me 2nd place in a chili cook-off contest!!!). My soups on the other hand are NEVER the same twice!
In this pot is everything but the kitchen sink: hamburger, baked potatoes, leeks, carrots, celery, spinach, cabbage, onion, garlic, tomatoes... beef broth, Italian seasoning, seasoning salt, and celery salt... I'm surely forgetting something.
Basically what I do it scour the refrigerator for leftover this and that and combine it into a soup or stew. You just never can tell from time to time what it's going to be like. But it's almost always a warm comfort food that everyone appreciates.
There's just something about Fall that makes soup so much more appreciated.
**Do you make/eat more soup during the colder months???
