This ‘penicillin-in-a-bowl’ uses one of my favorite short cuts~ a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. Orzo fills in for traditional noodles and lemon adds a bright, refreshing note to the chicken broth.

    Mary, nothing says comfort on a cold winter day like a steaming bowl of soup and cornbread…a bowl of chili is in my future. We have sunshine today, but rain returns tonight.

    • February 18, 2021 at 5:30 am

      I agree Pam, I hope you’re ice-free! Stay warm ♥

    Blue skies and sun are in sight, but the temperature says brrrrr! Definitely a great day for chili and cornbread. Such a terrific range of choices you presented, all look delicious! Although chili is on the menu today, I’ll definitely try the Ina Garten recipe next. Hope you’re all staying toasty!

    • February 18, 2021 at 5:29 am

      Hi Betsy, Blue skies and sunshine are good for the soul…we got to see some yesterday for a change! Thank you for your visits and comments. Stay warm ♥

    Mary, I’m actually one of those strange people who like winter and snow as long as the power stays on! There’s nothing better than a pot of soup simmering on the stove when it’s cold outside. Your soup medley looks delicious! Stay warm and cozy! Karen

    • February 18, 2021 at 5:24 am

    They all look so warming to the stomach. YUM YUM

      These soups are calling my name, especially since yesterday we received 15″ inches of snow! Ha! I have never been a big fan of orzo, but your chicken noodle, orzo with lemon does sound so good! Also, the kale, sausage and white bean sounds like the one soup Olive Garden has that I love, so I will be trying this one for sure. Thank you for taking the time to round up all these wonderful recipes. Praying for all my sweet friends in Texas and the South who are without power. Stay safe! ♥️

      • February 18, 2021 at 5:13 am

        Hi Cyndi, Wow 15 inches of snow, I can’t imagine! We’re under a winter weather advisory today but it will most likely be a wintry mix with ice before turning to rain. You can sub any noodle for orzo in the chicken soup. We had some this week and keep it in the freezer, it’s good for what ails ya…;) Stay warm and safe! ♥

      Hi Clara, Are you under a winter storm advisory today? Hope your stay safe and are warming up this weekend! ♥

  18. February 17, 2021 at 9:29 pm

    I would enjoy any of those stews/soups, Mary, especially the Irish Beef Stew. Our frigid temperatures are begging for heartwarming comfort foods. I don’t know if I told you that I made your broccoli cornbread for New Year’s Day? We enjoyed it! Thank you for sharing all these favorites. ❤️

    • February 18, 2021 at 5:16 am

      Hi Kitty, I just looked at the weather and saw you’re on warming trend starting Friday. It’s stilled colder in your neck of the woods than here, crazy weather! I’m glad you enjoyed the cornbread, stay warm! ♥
