3 Souper Soup Recipes {Blast from the Past}

As I had lunch with friends recently and I enjoyed my cup of soup, I shared this story...

(feel free to scroll down if you don't want to read the chit chat=) 

Because I was raised on soup, and the first few years we were married, I never made it at home. 

But when I was 38 years old, I had surgery to remove a brain tumor (benign - thank the good Lord).

I had 2 surgeries...a total of 23 hours...and was hospitalized (in another state away from my children) for a month. 

After the second surgery, they didn't feed me soon enough after surgery and my body was traumatized.  It took me forever to eat anything.  My dear hubby fed me a slice of buttered bread and 3 carrot rings a few days after that second surgery, and it took me half an hour to eat it. 

So....the 'moral' of my story is to say..while laying there in that bed, barely able to eat anything, I was SO intrigued by soup commercials on tv...that I couldn't WAIT to get home and have some homemade soup.  It was an easy thing for me to eat and we've been enjoying it ~ often~ ever since. 

A good friend has served this soup to company and told me they decided it was better than what a well-known chain restaurant serves. It's perfect to enjoy with a grilled cheese sandwich. 


This yummy...and oh so easy...recipe is one of my most repeated.  Love it!!



  1. So glad you recovered from your surgery. I love eating soup in restaurants, but I never seem to make it at home. I should try your tasty lookin' soup recipes!

  2. Oh my, dear Marsha, I never knew about your brain surgery and all that you went through. I can understand why soup is such a comfor to you. It warms the heart and soul! xo

  3. Wow, that sounds quite the ordeal! Thank God you made it through OK! And that he brought you around to soup again through it! ;)


  4. Im so sorry that you went thru those surgeries, but Thank God that you are OK! =)

    Your soups sound wonderful! =)

  5. Praise the Lord it was benign and you are here with us today! :-) I can't imagine being away from my kids for that long. What a struggle. So glad that everything worked out. God is good. :-) I love soup as well and these look yummy!
