The Soups of the Season

I've been cooking soups daily (and filling my freezer).
Currently, I have containers of Cauliflower Soup, Broccoli Soup, Lentil Soup, Mushroom Barley Soup,
Cream of Mushroom Soup, Black Eyed Pea Soup, Cannelini Soup.
They are great in the fall and winter seasons.
I find that as long as I have soup ready, making lunches, dinners becomes less of a chore.

Having a large salad and fruit salad also helps:)
It is no longer "what will I make for dinner". I just pull out a large bowl, gather my goodies from the veggie drawer, the pantry shelf and make a salad out of it.
If I have a good dressing - it is ALWAYS  well-received by family.

Speaking of dressings: I stopped buying them a while ago. If I don't have anything made up, it's a breeze to put together something with the help of  Olive Oil and Balsamic, Sherry, Rice, or Apple Cider vinegars.
