A few weeks ago I wrote about if you cook for fall, it will come. Well, it worked on a temporary basis. I made 3 pumpkin recipes and things were staying pretty crisp outside. Then I stopped. Over the weekend, I was sweating like it was August at the Chicago Gourmet.  #yuck

I’m sure I will wish for those unseasonably warm days in a few months, but all I’m wanting to feel a slight coldness in the air and nothing will warm me up more than a hot bowl of soup. Soup is a popular thing to eat in our home. I think it’s Jim’s favorite food group. I try to get creative with our soup options, like this Oven Roasted Squash, Sweet Potato & Carrot Soup or Black Bean & Bacon Soup. I like to come up with recipes you can’t get from your soup isle at the grocery store.

There is nothing more comforting than a cassoulet. Cassoulet sounds fancy but it’s just a french word for a slow cooked meat packed casserole. (See – not nearly as intimidating as it sounds.) A cassoulet is the actual dish used to make the casserole in. To make a cassoulet soup, I recommend breaking out the slow cooker. It’s easier than watching a pot on the stove for 5 hours.

This crock pot recipe is loaded with pork. It has crumbled bacon, diced pork chops and smokey sausage. It’s a pork lovers dream!!! Onions, white beans, tomatoes, thyme and rosemary layered in the crock pot to make this soup more than just pork. I did bread a cardinal rule of slow cooking…. I opened the lid while cooking just to get a peak. However, I got a whiff of this cassoulet soup and it smelled like pizza. I could hardly wait for dinner!!
