    Cold weather soup.

    Most of us know that during nasty cold weather, cold weather soup hits the spot like nothing else. So, being from New England, I know how to make a good clam chowder.
    It's like a law here. Heck, even my high school cafeteria made it right.

    So, what does everyone like for cold weather soup? I'd like to try Mushroom and potato soup. Got a simple recipe for it, sounds pretty good.

    Chicken soup: but of course. Nothing wrong with it, other than it makes me want to take a nap after eating it.

    Beef Stew: Actually good year round.
    I thought I was suffering from depression once. Turned out, I was simply surrounded by idiots.

    Had a hambone and parsley in the fridge,
    thought to myself that would make a
    good split pea soup. Or some kind of
    bean soup. But, checked the cabinets
    and I only had barley. So what the heck,
    got some garlic, onion, carrots and celery.
    Threw everything in the slowcooker at
    night, next day soup was served

    Does chili count?

    It's a tradition in our family. My kids each get 4 quarts of frozen Dad-the-Bad chili for Christmas every year.

    I do a lot of cooking with a pressure cooker. One of my favorite pressure cooker soup recipes is turkey with root vegetables (parsnips, leeks, carrots--sometimes I add turnips or potatoes). With the pressure cooker one gets the same kind of intense flavor in 30 minutes that takes 2 or 3 hours of simmering on the stovetop.

    Cooks Illustrated has a special "Soups and Stews" issue out right now. We made some of their minestrone over the weekend that was great. We also have a tremendous recipe for lentil soup, and for decades I've made my dad's old recipe for vegetable beef soup. And of course chili of several varieties, from vegan to white to my own regular recipe.

    1. A beef stew, year round for us, too.
    2. Clean out the refrigerator soup, as above.
    3. Crock pot turkey and vegetable soup.
    3. Crock pot sauteed chicken breasts and mushrooms in sour cream sauce.
    4. Clam chowder with oysters added.
    All are actually crock pot soups or stews. When we are extra good my wife fixes Chicken and corn chowder.

    Leek & Potato
    Lentil
    Beef Stew
    all w/home made biscuits

    My sister makes a great cold weather soup that she calls Red Soup - it's got red potatoes, red onions, red beans, a little bit of bacon and chili powder, simmered in chicken stock with some milk splashed in at the end (use to be cream, but we all have to watch it now) It's so good.

    Even though I cannot stand to watch her(because of incessant talking), Rachel Ray's Italian sub 'stoup' is quite awesome. Look it up. Try it.

    A single soup or stew would be boring, but I do have favorites. We generally prepare the following during the course of a winter:

    Split pea and ham
    Oyster stew
    Navy bean and ham
    Potato soup with egg rivel
    Curried lentil soup
    French onion soup
    Burgundy beef stew
    Pancetta and roasted squash soup
    Roasted garlic and cauliflower soup
    Bouillabaisse
    A conclusion is the place where you got tired of thinking. - S. Wright

    Wife is into allsorts of home made soups and anything containing ButterNut Squash and she loves it--I don't. Anything with lots of meat in it somewhere helps me to warm up but one of the "OLD" favourites is Mulligatawny Soup. Highly spiced and warms the parts others cannot reach. Next up is Oxtail. Once again highly spiced. I like Spiced foods but had to give up when one of my neighbours made a Red-Thai soup. That was too warm--but then she was from Thailand.

    We make an excellent potato/mushroom/cheddar soup during the winter months. I will post the recipe when I get home.

    The current house favorite is chicken soup made with home smoked chicken.
