A Batch Each Weekend

33

This Sparked Me!

I bring my lunches to work and I love homemade soup. I make a batch each weekend for enough for 8 to 10 servings. I then freeze it in small containers.I make up my own soups with what I have and like to add. Its also a good way to keep the sodium down.

MORE INFORMATION:
I add the recipes to my sparks recipe box and its a quick add to my nutrition page. Now that our kids are out of the house we can just grab a quick dinner out of the freezer after a long day at work. I use those food saver bags and the food does not get freezer burn.

    I do the same thing. Don't have to think about what I'm packing during the week, makes life much easier, and I know what's in it exactly and how many calories. Yum!

    We have my homemade soup and wholegrain crackers for one of our meals every day. Low in calories and high in nutrion!. Glad to see others appreciate soup like we do.

    I cut up my veggies for a week every Sunday night with my wife and put them in servering sizes for work. This is a great idea for soups too. My wife does make stock with just the broth and meat and then all we have to do is add our frozen veggies and noodles if we want them.

    I could totally live on homemade soups! Even days in a row I love them.
They taste so much better than the canned stuff

    That sounds like an excellent way to have fresh soup servings. I am nursing Bronchitis and a friend brought me home made chicken soup. We will eat all that, but how great to have some for future illnesses since we are elderly. Thanks emoticon emoticon emoticon
