Soup night!!

If you currently don’t have a particular day of the week dedicated to soup night, you need to do that. Wednesday night is our soup night and the entire family has gotten used to that and it’s so much easier to come up with a menu plan when you have that scheduled.


First, can we just say you don’t technically need aside for a good soup? However, sometimes you just want something to complete the soup. For us, that is usually a bread recipe! Here are some of our favorite bread we enjoy with a good soup!

Well, friends, that wraps up our Favorite Soup Roundup! I hope you are inspired to try something new and be sure to check out our Shrimp Recipe Roundup.! <3
