It was a very chilly week here in SE Wisconsin last week! From what I've heard, much of the U.S. had below normal temperatures with ice and snow.
Since there is nothing like a hot bowl of soup to warm you on a cold, winter evening, I thought it would be fun to look back at my most viewed soup recipes. Perhaps you might find one or two that you'd like to try!
Chicken Vegetable Soup with Caraway Gnocchi was #10 with 3,090 views.
Tomato Soup with Cheesy Polenta Garnish (think of your childhood tomato soup and grilled cheese) is #9 with 3,208 views.
Provençal Vegetable Soup, garnished with a dollop of pesto, is 8th with 3,391 page views.
In 7th spot, this Cauliflower Soup with Parmesan Croutons has received 3,608 looks.
6th place goes to Minestrone Soup with ditalini pasta. This post has had 4,181 looks so far.
In 5th position is this very healthy Green "Love" Soup made from a delicious variety of greens and spices, It has 4,798 page views.
In 4th place is one of my personal favorites, Spinach Pasta e Fagioli Soup. This great recipe, given to us by friends, years ago, has had 4,894 page views.
My 3rd most viewed recipe is for the hearty Lentil Soup with Ham and Kale. with 6,633 views. I don't know about you, but I love lentil soups, especially with smoky meat like ham. However, you could make this a great vegetarian meal and leave out the meat too. The kale adds beautiful color and added nutrition.
My second, all time most viewed soup recipe is Wonton Soup with Noodles and Baby Bok Choy. 12,924 views! Not only nutritious and delicious but so pretty too. One of those soups that you eye with your eyes first but there won't be a drop left in the bowl.
And then in first place....
With a whopping 55,305 page views, my #1 viewed soup recipe is this Navy Bean Soup made with Leftover Ham. There is nothing like a hearty ham and bean soup to warm you when the temperatures dip!
The other thing that helps us get through winter is seeing a new movie now and then. I just wanted to give 2 thumbs up to La La Land! My husband and I just saw it last night. The music is wonderful! Thankfully, my husband is a music 'geek' and was in the orchestra pit with his string bass for many high school musicals :) The composer, Justin Hurwitz, is a native of Milwaukee and went to high school here! Great job, Justin! We loved it.
