Seven soups every Saturday: slow cooker soup recipes
It's been too hot to cook much in my Rhode Island kitchen this summer, so I've been exploring ways to cook without firing up the stove or oven. Enter the slow cooker! Earlier this year I purchased a four-quart Crock-Pot® for less than $20 at our local discount chain store, and though I also have a larger, fancier model with a timer (very handy) and a few other snazzy features, I make rotisserie chicken stock, and small batches of soup, much more often in the smaller pot. Without heating up the kitchen one little bit.
Seven slow cooker soup recipes caught my eye this week:
Slow cooker mulligatawny soup, from A Year of Slow Cooking
Slow cooker beef barley soup, from Andrea Meyers
Chipotle black bean soup, from Yumsugar
Slow cooker chicken tortilla soup, from Evil Shenanigans
Thai chicken soup, from Sidewalk Shoes
Slow cooker peanut soup, from A Veggie Venture
Roasted corn chowder with chicken, lime and cilantro, from Gluten-Free Goddess

Thrift shops are a soup blogger's best friend, and these seven bowls all came from thrift shops. My favorite is Savers, an outpost of a national chain of thrift shops with a purpose: purchases and donations of goods help support 120 nonprofit organizations. Read more about Savers, and look for one in your community. They have a great selection of soup bowls.
If you'd like to share photos of seven soup bowls from your kitchen -- or from a friend's house, or your parents' attic, or an antique shop, or a housewares store, or a school or restaurant -- I'd love to share those photos on Saturdays.
It's easy: send one photo, of seven soup bowls. The bowls must all be able to be used for eating soup (no mixing bowls or troughs, please), and they absolutely do not have to match. Send the largest file your camera will allow; I'll size it to fit. Make sure the photo is in focus (very important). Tell me whose bowls are in the photo, or where you took the picture. If you're a blogger, I'll link to your blog.
That's it. One photo, seven soup bowls. Email to lydia AT ninecooks DOT com.
