My family knows my favorite supper is to sit down with a hot bowl of homemade soup, a nice piece of homemade bread and a crispy green salad topped with homemade dressing. Comfort food at its finest.
The other day I was talking to my youngest about writing this post and I had to laugh. She told me that when she was little, about the first grade, she used to think that "homemade" was a brand. Of course it is. It's my favorite brand.
I think that means I might be doing something right. J
Homemade soup is good. It is good for our bodies and for our souls. Fresh made bread is the perfect accompaniment in my book and a great way to add extra fiber to our diet. I usually make a big pot of soup every Saturday. Fresh rolls, biscuits, cornbread, breadsticks or loaves of French bread usually make their way to the table too.
We keep salads going all week long but I really enjoy them with soup meals. I try to keep them interesting with a variety of different vegetables, olives, pickles, and so forth. Every week or so I like to make a pint of salad dressing and again different ones each time to keep things interesting.
Thrifty, wholesome and delicious nutrition for me and my family. What is your favorite soup, salad and bread combination?
