Get the kids off to school, dig out the crockpot, chop up your vegies, add your stock and dinner's done. Don't worry about filling your pantry with those nasty tasting canned soups (sorry Mr Campbell). I just don't think there's anything worse. I must admit, I have bought the odd can of tomato soup as a back up on those 'no can do' dinner nights and added a few pasta noodles, meatballs, vegetables and herbs and spices for a quick meal. Homemade soup has to be one of the easiest meals going and can be as light or as hearty as you like. Here's a few of my favourites.
