Happy First Day Of Fall!

The year is flying by and it’s a bittersweet feeling for me. My kids are growing up so quickly and we have a huge list of adventures that we would really love to experience with them. Knocking off Mount Rushmore from our RV Bucket list was biggie for us, but now we are needing a new goal. In my mind it’s Washington, D.C., but we will see what Ryan has to say about that.

Fall is officially the kickoff of “Soup Season” for our family. Warm, thick and savory soup is a magical meal wonder that we crave anytime, anywhere. We enjoy ladling it over rice, mixing it with crushed crackers or sometimes just right out of a mug. If I have done my homework and we are planning a trip, I will prepare a soup ahead of time and then freeze it flat in a Ziploc bag. This way I save room in our tiny freezer and then I only have to heat it up in some boiling water. Sometimes I am not so organized and I need to wing it. This is where my heavy pot or slow cooker comes in handy.

In honor of the season's arrival today, I have three tomato soup recipes to share. They are all RV friendly, though some are much easier than others. If you are hitting the cold roads this season, these soups are sure to keep you and your loved ones warm.
