Welcome to Taste and Tell Thursdays! Come link up your posts below!
You guys, it is cold here. Bitterly cold. I know many of you feel my pain. I watch on Instagram, and people are either freezing their fannies off, or they are enjoying unseasonably warm days. I have had some serious envy for those of you who are out on boats, in swimming pools, or even just hanging out in the backyard. I’m jealous of those of you who don’t have to wear a jacket all day – inside! – because you just can’t get warm.

My fridge is out in the garage, and I have to keep turning the temperature up because everything is freezing. I went out the other day, and the majority of my vegetables were frozen and ruined. That, my friends, is cold.

So naturally, what do you do when the warmest it has been in 2 weeks has been 20F? You make soup, of course!! If you have leftover cooked chicken, I’m betting you can have this on the table in 20 minutes. And really, it would even be good without the chicken. But it’s filling. And it’s warm. That’s all you can ask for when it’s so cold outside!!

  1. Deborah,
    Thanks for finding my Farm Fresh Feasts-a-boli and telling me about your blog!

    I’ve come to join the party, and brought a breakfast (Chocolate Cherry Cider muffins–though they can be made with apple juice if cider is gone from your area), a lunch (Mindless Sweet Potato Hash–mindless because it bakes in the oven while I sit on the computer . . .), and dinner. I brought cheese pizza because it’s usually a favorite, but I had CSA farm share spinach so I made a spinach crust, and I’d put up some fresh tomato pesto sauce with the last of my farm share tomatoes [adapting the recipe for Cherry Tomato Pesto from In Her Chucks great recipe]. That makes the simple cheese pizza Not So Simple!

    I cannot believe your fridge is in the garage–how cold that must be. I thought I had it bad with frost on the *inside* of my kitchen window, but frozen veggies would be way worse. I’d be turning frozen veggies into a lot of soup stock in that case!

    This soup looks wonderful (great photo) and I love the addition of vinegar at the end. My favorite soup from A Veggie Venture, Greens ‘n All Beet Soup, finishes with a splash of vinegar as well.

    Thank you for hosting!

    I took the survey. And I added Italian Sausage Cottage Pie to the linky. Have a great day, ~Liz

  3. I took the survey!
    I could SO use this delicious looking soup in Boston right now! It’s freezing here. Glad we’re not alone. 🙂

  4. Kim says:

    Happy Thursday! I completed the survey.

  5. I love tortellini in pretty much anything. This looks great!! Love seeing all the featured recipes too 🙂

  6. bellini says:

    I took a few seconds to answer your survey. It certainly has been cooler, but so far it has been a mild winter..so far, so much more of winter left to go. I am hoping for snow because at least then it is warmer and I feel all cozy wrapped up inside with a bowl of comforting soup.

  7. danielle says:

    Thanks you so much for featuring my fries!

  8. Anj says:

    I answered your survey. Count me in the warm part of the country, wishing it were colder, but I don’t think I could handle your kind of cold! I love your blog and think you continue to make it better and better all the time.

  9. Heather Spooner says:

    I took the survey. Thanks for all the delish recipes!

  10. Jess Z says:

    I took the survey. Enjoy seeing all the recipes linked up! Texas never has extremely cold days. After visitng family in CT this past holiday season, I’m so much more grateful for our warmer winters. Although, come summer, I’ll be wishing I were in the north. 😉

  11. Joanne says:

    I have been eating a TON of soup lately to counteract this cold! Good old tortellini soup is one I seem to have forgotten lately. Need to change that!

  12. Thanks so much for featuring my Nutella & Caramelized Banana Crepes! So happy you liked them. And this soup sounds so good and easy to make! Bookmarking it for sure.

  13. It’s freezing here too! I slipped on ice this morning and am currently feeling really bad for myself. This soups sounds like the perfect medicine!

  14. This soup looks so simple and delicious!! Thanks for including our pasta in your features 🙂

  15. Whitney says:

    I took the survey 🙂

    Thanks for the great recipe post. I always forget about tortellini soup. I’m adding it to our next meal plan. I’m going to do rotisserie chicken to save time! I also love to make Parmesan crisps (a pile of parm melted flat) to go with tortellini soup. Yum Yum! Thanks for helping me remember this great recipe!

  16. Pat Bradley says:

    I took your survey and I understand why you would question “should I continue”. I started a blog just for myself and expected only friends and family would read it. I slowly went too long between posts so nobody reads it anymore. Shame on me.

  17. This soup sounds like the perfect winter comfort food! I’d love to cozy up to a big ol’ bowl of it in my jacket and my leg warmers and my long underwear. 😉

  18. teresa says:

  22. This soup looks amazing! I pinned it for later use! Thanks for hosting the link party! This is my first time linking up!

  23. I took the survey. Love your party and your blog. Thanks for hosting.
    Give-aways are nice, but not my main reason for checking in every week.

  24. I have been eating SO MUCH SOUP lately. It feels great to eat something hot in this frigid cold weather. I also know it’s helping me from getting sick (knock on wood). This soup sounds fantastic!
