Top Seven Cold Weather Soups

It's raining, cold and gray. Sound familiar? While meteorologically this has been a very mild winter, we live in Ohio, so even the mild winters feel cool, especially when it rains. Honestly, I think I would prefer snow to lots of cold, damp rain.

What's the perfect dinner on a cool, cold or downright frigid night? Soup! Here's my list of Top Seven Cold Weather Soups:

Seven Bean Soup
: An almost perfect blend of savory herbs and hearty beans. This recipe came from my friend Camille, a friend who has given me many sure-fire recipes. Bonus: it makes enough to share with a friend!

Perfectly Simple Chicken and Orzo Soup
: Almost as easy as opening a can of condensed soup, but far more transcendent in flavor. Good, solid soup that is a real crowd pleaser.

Butternut Squash and Carrot Soup
: Who knew soup could be slightly sweet? This soup is one of my boys' favorites, and I love that they get tons of good Vitamin A with each bite.

Make-it-your-own Chowder: A slow cooker soup that you can alter to your family's tastes. We love it with potatoes, cheese and crab, but to each their own!

Pizza Soup
: Tomato soup, all jazzed up and re-named to appeal to my boys. Again, you can make it whatever type of "pizza" you want, and top with your favorite flavors.

Creamy White Bean Soup
: A low-fat soup that tastes like a rich cream-based soup.

Slow Cooker Lentil Soup: My newest favorite soup. Full of vitamins, iron and most importantly, delicious flavor.

Choose one of these soups to warm up your cold winter night!

Life is sweet,

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
