Engaging Methuen Readers

Cloudy with a chance of soup…

1 Comment

As I write this blog post, our weather forecast in Methuen calls for rain/snow showers and wind today with continuing clouds on the horizon for the next few days.  Snow, wind chill factors, overcast –Ah, New England winters!  What’s one to do when you can’t hide under a blanket and hibernate for the season?

Give yourself a warm hug all over with a steaming bowl of soup.  Or how about an easy crock pot stew that makes itself during the day and greets you at the door with an alluring warm aroma?  Hello Crock, I’m home!Image of item

Try recipes from the following cookbooks to combat the Winter Blahs.  As the Campbell Soup commercials say, it’s “Mmm, mmm good!”

Editor’s Note:  I’ve made a soup, a one-pot meal and a slow-cooker recipe from this book this winter and they were all as the book proclaims:  easy, fast and delicious!
