Why I Love National Soup Month + Recipes

January is National Soup Month and it’s time to celebrate! Learn how a bowl of delicious soup can help whisk away those winter blues!

How to Celebrate National Soup Month

There isn’t much better than a bowl of delicious soup on a cold winter day. We don’t get a lot of snow here in Lynchburg, but we do get chilly temperatures, winds, and our fair share of rain. Once I get chilled, it’s hard for me to warm up. That’s why our family enjoys a lot of soup during this time of year.

You can celebrate with a new soup each day. I love how everything is tossed into one pot and you’re good to go. Using in-season vegetables can help save money and bring the best of the season to your dinner table. Pay it forward by making up a batch for someone sick, an elderly neighbor, or local homeless shelter.

Celebrate by investing in a set of soup bowls like these classic soup crocks. They bring back memories of my childhood and the vintage dishes that my grandparents and parents used at the dinner table. You’ll also want a set of heavy-duty soup spoons.

One of my favorite traditions that I do with my own family is to make random pots of soup. Our family will throw out ingredient ideas to create a one-of-a-kind dish. It’s fun because it gets everyone involved and can open kids up to trying new flavors that they have a hand in creating! I love that you can also sneak in veggies that kids don’t like and they’ll never even realize they’re in the pot.
