I suppose it makes sense, January being dubbed National Soup Month.
It is this time of year where the winter begins to feel like it’s going to start dragging on. Everyone is a little burned out from all the holiday cooking. Perhaps your pants are fitting a little more snug from all those heavy meals and delicious goodies.
Soup is a warm and wonderful way to bring comfort to the soul….and lighten things up a touch after a couple months of over-indulgence.
Added bonus? Soup tends to stretch across a couple of meals (or easily feed a larger group) with relatively low cost AND unless you seek out a tedious recipe, soup is generally simple to toss together which makes it perfect for a busy mom-life.

Once the cooler weather arrives, I like to get a pot of soup onto the weekly meal plan. There are so many good recipes out there that we rarely see a repeat all through the cold weather months (and it is now that I’m realizing I need to do more showcasing these yummy creations here on the blog!).
And if you have a kid (or kids) who think they don’t like soup, here’s one of my favorite mom-hacks: drain the broth and serve the remaining meat/beans/veggies/etc. on a plate rather than in a bowl. This is is harder to do with super thick and creamy varieties but I’ve found lots of success otherwise.
