It’s Soup Weather: Places to Get Excellent Soup, Plus Recipes

This time of year, I am reminded why I live in Texas. Because, in all honesty, I’m a wimp about this cold weather. My normal urges to flee the house are met with an almost equal desire to stay inside in my fuzzy socks. It’s also prime time for soup. In fact, I’ve had soup twice this week. Whether you prefer to get your soup out of the house or make your own, we’ve got you covered.

Here are some of our favorite soups to eat out:

Catherine recommended the Famous Baby A’s Soup:

We love to keep it local, whenever possible, but it’s hard to resist La Madeleine’s Tomato Basil Soupe (that’s not a typo, but how the French Cafe likes to spell it):
