I am not going to lie I have NOT been looking forward to the coming of the cold weather. I was definitely enjoying the Indian Summer and the warm Fall days we have been having. But here in Eastern Pennsylvania winter is starting to make her appearance! We woke up to temperatures in the 20’s this morning and everything covered in a beautiful, shimmering blanket of frost.
That makes things a little more difficult around the homestead. Getting up and out to feed and water the animals is always a little more painstaking in the cold. But it has to get done and everyone was happy to get their breakfast this morning!
Now I love me a good bowl of soup. I love soup in any kind of weather. In the dead of summer I can still enjoy a huge bowl of hearty soup! But I especially love curling up on the couch with a steaming mug of soup when it is freezing cold outside. It is such a comfort food for me and really feeds my soul. My husband on the other hand is not a huge fan of soup. There are really very few soups that I make that he really likes, but this awesome recipe is an exception. He will eat this for dinner and actually take leftovers for lunch the next day…. which says A LOT!
This recipe is perfect for a cold day! It reheats well, can easily be make Whole 30 compliant and is a family favorite in our house! This is a great way for me to get the kids to eat their leafy green veggies as well! So it really is a huge winner all around. Hopefully this will make it into your meal rotation and will warm you up on those cold winter days to come! Enjoy!
This post contains affiliate links to some of my favorite products to use in making this recipe. I do not endorse any product that I do not wholeheartedly believe in or personally use! Speaking of that Le Creuset is my absolute favorite brand of Cookware, but it is very pricey. Like one pot or pan as a Christmas gift each year pricey. Check out the link below for their awesome dutch over, which is perfect for this recipe.
For a little less pricey but still great quality brand check out the Lodge brand which is also awesome!!
