    I'm not a huge fan of either but I am going to incorporate a soup and sandwich night.
    These are the ones that I remember liking.
    Southwestern Pumpkin Soup

    1 tsp. vegetable oil
    1 1/2 pounds boned rump roast, cut into 1-inch cubes
    2 tsp. dried oregano
    3 garlic cloves, minced
    1/2 cup dry white wine
    1 TBS. Sugar
    3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
    2 TBS red wine vinegar
    1 (14 1/4 oz) can low salt beef broth
    1 (14.5 oz) can no salt added stewed tomatoes, undrained
    4 whole cloves
    6 cups 1/3 inch-thick sliced onion, separated into rings

    Heat the oil in a Dutch oven over med-high heat. Add half the beef, cook 5 minutes or until browned, turning occasionally. Remove from pan and keep warm. Repeat procedure with remaining beef.

    Return beef to pan and add oregano and garlic. Cook for 1 minute. Stir in wine and next 7 ingredients and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 1 hour. Add onion and bring to a boil. Partially cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 1 hour or until beef is tender. Discard cloves. Place in an airtight container and freeze. To serve: Thaw in refrigerator. Reheat in a Dutch oven until thoroughly heated.
    And Fasolada which I already posted.
    Italian Wedding Soup
    This year I intend on doing these:
    Shortcut Pork Cassoulet

    Rick Bayless | Toasted Tortilla Soup with Fresh Cheese and Chile Pasilla

    I would like to find a really excellent chicken tortilla soup (if the above fails) and a fantastic chicken and dumplings recipe that doesn't use some version of canned cream of celery/chicken soup.

    Post your soups and stews.

    My family LOVES this butternut and acorn squash soup. One time attempted to make it without the acorn, using two butternut. Not the same; better with the mix. The key is to cook the squash til it's really done well.

    Another absolute family favorite that my grown kids ask for again and again when they come home from college: creamy white chicken chili. I had it many years ago and looked for the recipe in so many places--found a lot of "white chicken chili" but that just means white beans with chicken. The end step of adding the half and half and sour cream makes the chili so yummy and filling when the weather turns cold

    This is a great thread--I'm glad I caught it! We live in a cold climate and love soup/stew when the weather turns. Looks like it's just about to! I have a couple more recipes but will wait for others to chime in! Yours looks great too!

    WHAT???
    Not a fan of soups and stews.... blasphemy. :p
    Right now it is an unbelievable 87 degrees outside so a little hard to think about soups...even though it is almost October!!
    I can't wait for tomato bisque and grilled cheese sammies... Chili...Beef Stew.... Fish/Chorizo chowder... but alas... 87 friggin degrees.

    I know right? It is currently 67 here.... windows open, fans in windows blowing air in....awesome stuff.
    I am out of chicken stock, so going to take advantage of the cooler temps to boil a chicken and make some more stock.
    Bonz wants some chicken noodle soup and take the rest and make chicken salad.
