Today is a Soup Day

Taco Soup
Centralia, Missouri
December 1, 2015 3:56pm CST
Today is what many would call a dreary overcast kind of day. I rather like these days, yes I spend a bit of it sleepy, but I can go outside without wearing sunglasses. The temperature is lovely, and for once, it is not raining. On days like that, and many other days, I make soup. This one (seen in the photo, although the photo is from another batch) is Taco Soup, or Dump Soup. I dump beans, corn, olives, tomatoes, chillies, and seasonings (taco, ranch and Italian dressings. So was it a soup day for you? If so, what was your soup to make? I am always on the lookout for more soup options.

@Susan2015 Vince is off to golf shortly and normally I would get dinner. However he is going to make pancakes. I will get the batter ready for him and have it in the fridge.

Oh! You must be in Texas or somewhere warm like this! Ireland is cold and wet definitely a soup day. I did my winter vege soup, chicken stock cube, potato, carrot, onion, green beans fresh, then a tin of 4 beans mix (chickpea, butter beans, kidney beans, and black eyed beans). It's perfect with soda bread.

I could have been a soup day here, as it was a misty day, but it was a mild day here, so no soup for me.

Interesting combination. I've only had breakfast. I haven't been real hungry lately, though I'm beginning to feel like I could use something to eat and maybe some soup - Campbell's - would be good.

It was chilly and rainy this morning. It was a good day to make tomato soup and grilled cheese sanwiches . But that's not what we had.

For me soup is more of a liquid than what you show here. I make a lot of pumpkin soup in winter, and vegetable soup.

I'm not a souper. For me soup only fills the stomach but isn't of much substance.

The weather here is snowy and cool. Soup is good for snowy days too along with hot chocolate and a good book to read by the fire. But alas we must travel today to our daughter's to help get her Suburban running as she is down and out and needs help as has children she has to transport and other errands. She may have some sort of soup on though as she often does on days like this.
