I'm not a huge soup person but my husband ... he LOVES soup. I think he gets it from his Mom. He and I have been trying to reduce our spending and one of the ways we are trying to do this is buy bringing food to work and eating all leftovers... which also reduces waste - win win.

He unfortunately doesn't like cold cut sandwiches as much as I do. This week he told me if I make lots of soup on a Sunday, he'll bring soup all week. I figure - why not!

So today while I was at the grocery store I purchased the following:
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Potatoes
  • Butternut Squash
  • Celery
  • Carrots
  • Parsnips
  • Cauliflower
  • Lentils
  • Yellow Split Peas
  • Brown Rice
Between the purchases above and what I already have in my fridge, I'm hoping to make him lots of soup.... soup to eat, soup to store, soup to freeze... SOUP!

I'm thinking a chicken noodle, sweet potato, and cauliflower soup can be interesting... but I also may make a Puchero. In general - I'm not a soup person, so please share your favorite, EASY soup recipes!
