Friday Finds

Life or something like it has been going on so I have been MIA from Friday Favorite Finds for a couple of weeks.  I did not have a lot of time to surf the internet this week either, but I did link up a couple of soup recipes to SoupaPalooza II over at Dine and Dish and Tidy Mom.  While I was there I checked out some of the links that caught my eye, so this week's Friday Finds is all about soup.


I still have a round steak or two in the freezer that I purchased before meat prices went crazy.  I think that I will use one of them to make this.  It looks like a nice departure from ground beef based soup.


I love chili and cornbread together and thought that this was a very fun way to serve it.  I have not seen these little wide-mouth jars, but she give a link to good ole Amazon to purchase them.  Both recipes are included, but one could use their own favorites.

Brown Acres

This is a favorite combination of mine.  I am anxious to try this version which has sort of rolled dumplings.

Relishing It

I have heard of this but never made it.  I will now.  This picture makes me want to jump right into the bowl.

Mom on Timeout

Broccoli and Cheese Soup is a favorite of mine, and I will eat almost anything if it has bacon in it. Maybe that addition would get this past hubby.  If not, I will just have to make it for myself.

Mrs. Yellow Hat

Made with canned, stewed tomatoes and chicken broth, this is one that could be whipped up in a hurry if the ingredients were on hand.  Seems like a good recipe to know about.

Happier than a Pig in Mud

This is from one of my favorite blogs.  Another quick-to-make soup if one has the ingredients on hand; and, of course, there is that bacon again.

Chasing Delicious

This recipe cooks the rice right in the soup which saves a step, I think.  The blogger wrote this post about making soup when she was sick.  It is a good read.

Moving Mommy

This would be a great inexpensive gift idea and gets away from the sweets people usually get.  This and the rest of the ingredients could be taken to a new mother or someone recovering from being in the hospital and would be most welcome I am sure.

Well, that is 10 recipes so I am going to stop here, but with 220 recipes in SoupaPalooza I and 238, and counting, recipes in SoupaPalooza II, I don't think that I will have to go far to find a new soup recipe to try.

SoupaPalooza II is open until March 5 so if you have a great soup recipe to share, you can find the details here.

As always the photos were taken by and are the property of the owners of the respective blogs represented.

I am linking to Friday Favorite Finds at Finding Joy in My Kitchen and am looking forward to seeing what other bloggers have found this week, too.


  1. I saw the Broccoli, Bacon, and Cheese Soup on Mom on Timeout yesterday and thought it looked so good, too. Great to have you back and Friday's Finds!

  2. Thanks for the shout out! I hope you love the soup if you try it, it's quickly become a favorite of mine. Happy Weekend:@)

  3. Oh my so much soup! I love the look of cornbread and chili in a jar! Also this must mean that chili counts in the soupapalooza so thanks for that link! (I just made my first batch of crockpot chili and it was amazing so I'm posting it this weekend.)

    I also missed the last Friday Finds because of school work. Excited to participate this week! :-)

  4. I was wondering where you were off to. Glad to have you back! The steak soup and chili look like some tasty eats!
