Soup, Salad & Homemade Bread

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?


  1. chili with cornbread & butter

  2. It depends on the time of year. During the winter we tend to eat heavier soups with dense bread. During the spring and fall they are lighter filled with seasonal produce served with rolls or muffins. During the summer I am the only one here who will eat soup. Then I have either cold soups or a light broth with crackers or flatbreads.

    1. Isn't it funny how the seasons affect our soup preferences.

  3. Ha! I love what your youngest said about the homemade brand- that is going to keep me smiling for a long time! :)
    I like making a huge pot of soup in the early afternoon and we eat it that day for both lunch and dinner. Then the next day I serve it with salad on the side or a grilled sandwich. Sometimes we just go with the flow and have crackers or bread. I like the idea of making breadsticks- your breadsticks in the picture look yummy!

    1. I love a grilled sandwich. Those breadsticks are made with my pizza dough. Super easy.
