Soup is one of my favorite things about cold weather. There is something fantastic about a warm bowl of soup waiting to warm you up after a long day of dashing in and out of the cold. The weather in northern Michigan has been crazy cold. Multiple days of below freezing temps and more days than I care to remember of below zero temps. Seriously, it was -26 (actual temp without wind chill) this morning. It is hard to wrap your brain around those temps. People ask how I survive such cold weather. My answer, I stay inside and make warm, hearty soups. Sharing 6 of my favorite soup recipes here.
When it’s brutal cold I usually enjoy my bowl of soup while wrapped up in a blanket. We keep the house temp set at 64 or 65 otherwise the heating bill would be painful to pay. I’ll keep blankets on the couch if it means saving some money on the heating bill.
