Chilli Soup with Cornbread

Chilli Soup with Cornbread

Today was lovely and sunny and warm. What a wonderful treat, after all the rain and cool weather we have been having. It was so nice out, I ate my Chilli Soup on the back deck and was able to get some nice photo’s in natural  light.

This soup is full of vegetables and nice and spicy. Paired with Cornbread, it is a (yet again) new favourite. It seems like every time I make a new soup it quickly becomes a favourite.

This one will be top of the list for a brief time, probably only until tomorrow’s post, but definitely only until the last recipe.  I have a special finale planned for September 30th post, a dessert soup with champagne and strawberries,,,,,,mmmmm, can’t wait.
