Introducing Sunday Night Soup Night!

As we move into fall, I’ve been thinking more and more about soup..…warm, comforting, nourishing, tasty soup! I’ll eat soup anytime of year, but I particularly associate it with the colder seasons.

Around 4pm one Sunday in October, after a very busy day, I couldn’t face the thought of making dinner, plus a batch of soup for the week, so in a flash of inspiration, I asked my husband “Do you mind if we just have soup for dinner tonight? That way I won’t have to cook two things right now.” He was fine with that. In fact we enjoyed having soup for dinner so much, that I suggested maybe we could make Sunday “soup night” all through fall and winter.

So I decided that I would make a different soup every Sunday and post the recipe. I have lots of soup recipes of my own to make, and I’m always seeing great soup recipes posted by fellow real foodies that I want to try.

Then I thought why not turn it into a carnival? That way others can share their wonderful soup and stock recipes too, and get ideas for new recipes to try. So I decided to create a seasonal blog carnival to celebrate soups and stocks! Starting Sunday October 23, I will be hosting “Sunday Night Soup Night”.

Are you a soup fan also?

Are you looking forward to making soup again now that the weather is getting cooler?

Do you have some great tips and tricks for making the perfect stock?

If you do, I really hope you will join me in posting your favorite soup, stock and chowder recipes!

Obviously it doesn’t have to be a recipe that you made on a Sunday, or ate on a Sunday. It also doesn’t have to be a recently posted recipe, it could be something you posted a while ago and wish to give it a fresh airing. But what it does have to be is homemade!

– No commercially canned or packaged soups
– No commercially canned or packaged stocks
– No commercial bouillon

Homemade soup made from homemade stock is the only kind of soup that truly nourishes 🙂

Sunday Night Soup Night will run every Sunday until early spring. I will aim to have the link up each Saturday night. Simply come to my homepage on a Sunday and you’ll see the Sunday Night Soup Night carnival right there. I am really looking forward to sharing some great soup/stock/chowder recipes!

Check out the archives if you want to have a look at some previous Sunday Night Soup Nights.

Happy soup making!

    I am a huge soup fan and love your idea of having Sunday Soup Night at your house – we have Taco Tuesdays, I think I will add Sunday Soup and now I don’t need to menu plan 2 nights! (other than what kind of soup!)

    1. Debbie says:

      I know what you mean about the menu planning 🙂 Maybe I’ll adopt your taco night! Look forward to seeing you at Sunday Soup Night.

  4. Sounds like a great idea! Looking forward to both sharing and being inspired!

    What a great idea, especially as we move into fall and winter. I’m from Seattle so soup is a must for half the year! Thanks for the invite by the way, I’ll be back to post my “cream” of chicken soup recipe!

    1. Debbie says:

      Thanks, looking forward to seeing you at the carnival!

    1. Debbie says:

      Yay, that sounds so good!

  8. Perfect timing! I was just telling my husband I am planning on Thursdays to be soup day so we always have plenty of leftovers for Sunday football (I don’t cook on Sundays). Now I’ll never run out of ideas 🙂

    Thanks for stopping by Savoring Today and inviting me to join in!

    1. Debbie says:

  12. Bibi says:

    Thanks for the invite. I would love to join it…..what a great idea.

  13. Becky D says:

    Great idea! During the school year, I make a big pot/crockpot of soup every Saturday, for lunch on Sunday, and for lunches and quick meals for the following week. We LOVE soup! My 7 yr. old’s favorite meal is my “secret ingredient” vegetable beef soup. Tomorrow I’m making Split Pea Soup, and I’ll be sharing that recipe.

    1. Debbie says:

      It’s great that your kids have developed a love of soup also. I love split pea soup, looking forward to your recipe!

  14. Miz Helen says:

    Does anyone “can” their soups? I am thinking of buying a pressure canner and I wonder how much success people have had?
