Cream of Zucchini Soup Recipe

Cream of Zucchini Soup Recipe

Cream of Zucchini Soup RecipeIf you have a garden or belong to a CSA, I am sure you have an over abundance of squash at this point! You can prepare squash for the freezer. I wrote a guest post on Mama Bzz  this week about freezing vegetables. My favorite way to freeze zucchini is shredded for future zucchini bread. Cream of Zucchini is new recipe to me and I will give it a try!

Summer squash and zucchini squash are here. Both of these classic summer veggies are abundant this time of year and are quite inexpensive. Problem is…it is difficult to preserve them by freezing or canning since they tend to get soggy and lose that fresh-from-the-garden flavor once preserved. So, a friend shared with me a cream of zucchini recipe that I just love. It freezes beautifully, it uses 2 lbs of zucchini, doubles or triples easily, and it is tasty. Don’t skip the bleu cheese; it adds such a wonderful flavor to this soup. Try it even if you think you don’t like bleu cheese. To freeze, cool completely. Pour 4 cups of soup into a quart-size freezer bag. Seal and store flat in freezer. Give this recipe a try when you have plenty zucchini, freeze a batch, and you’ll be enjoying the fresh summer flavor all year long.

Steakhouse Potato Soup in 5 Minutes? Believe it! Soup’s On!

Disclosure:My family happily ate their fill of Idahoan® Premium Steakhouse® Potato Soups as part of the #IdahoanSteakhouseSoups and Mom It Forward Blogger Network Campaign. All opinions and full bellies are our own.

Do you have an item that you never eat at home but always order when dining out if it is available on the menu? Something delicious that you love but just don’t want to put forth the effort to make it at home? Maybe it is something that can only be done right by your favorite restaurant. For me that item is steakhouse potato soup. I absolutely love thick hearty chunky potato soup but I can’t quite seem to make it as good as my favorite restaurants and certainly can’t get it on the table quickly. Until now.

 

Idahoan Steakhouse Potato Soup tastes like slow cooked and simmered soup but is ready in just five minutes

3 Bean Minestrone Soup Recipe from Prep-Ahead Meals From Scratch

This is Alea’s book We have been doing a thirty day no spend challenge and on of the main factors in my spending has always been food. It was my spending on food that was the inspiration for my site. It wasn’t that long ago that I started my site in 2009. It was a direct result of my desire to pay for our children’s prepaid college funds. We had one income and I was going to stay at home with the kids. The only money I had control of was my husband’s salary which had taken a hit with the acquisition of a new job. I gave up my job making $40,000 and my husband took a job making $25,000 less and we had a new mouth to feed. I knew one thing and I was committed to one thing beyond the normal things that children need and that was higher education. I believed and I still believe that education is power and I was going to provide each one of our children with that power. I didn’t want them to worry about loans or if they could go to college or not and that meant I needed to find the money in our budget to make sure that higher education was a priority. That meant taking a serious look at our spending. We looked and determined after our mortgage that food was our greatest expense. Then question then becomes how do you fix that? The answer is meal preperation. If you can figure out ways to make your food work for you not you work for your food you will be winning. I knew people who were winning in this area and luckily one of them, Alea created a cookbook. The Prep-Ahead Meals From Scratch: Quick & Easy Batch Cooking Techniques and Recipes That Save You Time and Money.

This is one of the recipes in her cook book that I made.
