Mmm, mmm, good...

Is soup on the menu at your house since it's been chilly outside?
I used to shy away from making it because it turned out sort of watery and less than tasty. But I kept trying and trying because soup is not only good food, it's very cheap!

Then I found this recipe for soup seasoning. I've tried to share it will all of my friends because I love it so much, it just makes the soup. And, if you are thinking ahead toward the holidays, it makes a nice gift if you use a pretty jar and some ribbon.

Basic Soup Seasoning:

1/4 cup basil

6 Tbsp. seasoning salt

1/8 cup thyme

1/8 cup onion salt

1/8 cup garlic powder

1/8 cup sage

1/8 cup pepper

1/8 cup celery salt

Mix well, store in airtight container. Use about 2 Tbsp. per pot of soup (or more, if you like it a little spicier like I do).

I hope you enjoy making soup more using this recipe!

So what kind of soups do you make? I am a soup lover, the rest of my family, well, they bear with me when I get a hankering to make some!

Hey, how are you? Thanks for stopping by... if I knew you were coming, I'd have baked a pie or something! :)

Kinds of soup? Well, I'm sort of a clean out the fridge kind of soup maker. Tomatoes, beans, any sort of left over meat or vegetables that have seen better days in the back of the crisper, you know, that sort of thing. The other day I made a great soup with leftover chicken chili, potatoes, tomatoes, carrots, celery zuchinni, onions, and I don't even know what else. Just dumped it all in there.

One book I read, maybe it was Tightwad Gazet or something, said to just keep a jar or pot in your freezer. When you have leftover anything, rice, meat, whatever would go well in soup, just add it to the pot in the freezer. When it's full, it is soup night. Put it on the stove, make a good broth and it's like having a free meal.
