As much as I love soup, I’ve found that my children do not. Oh, sure, there are some soups that they devour, like Chicken Noodle and Taco Soup. And they go crazy over Chili and Irish Stew. But, any other creations are bound to feel resistance from some part of the clan.
But that doesn’t mean I’ve quit trying. Not only are soups a great tummy warmer on cold nights, but they are also a frugal way to make use of leftovers.
One thing that we do to make Soup Night a little easier to swallow at our house is to provide interesting breads to go with. Sometimes that might be as simple as saltine crackers and soft butter. Other nights can be a little more elaborate with home baked bread of some kind.
Some of our favorite sides for soup:
- Garlic Focaccia
- Make Ahead Garlic Bread
- Drop Biscuits
- Homemade Baguette
- Garlic-Parmesan Swirl Biscuits
And some of our favorite soups:
- Tortilla Soup
- Chicken Noodle Soup
- Taco Soup
- Irish Stew
- Chihuahua Chili
- Classic Minestrone
- Quicker Minestrone
- Cheese Soup with Zucchini, Broccoli, and Carrots
