Heartfelt Thanks...and Comfort Food

I am so thankful God sent me special people
to help with with pain and sadness.
You, dear friends, are those special people.
Once again, I am overwhelmed by your love and kindness
during difficult, sad times.
Thank you for the prayers and comforting words during this time of loss.
I am full of gratitude for each and every one of you!
My love and thanks to you :)

Autumn - a time for comforting soup.
A bowl of warm soup always hits the spot on a cool Fall night
and it's also a perfect dish for comforting and warming the heart.
Do you enjoy soup, my friends?
What is your favorite kind?


I always enjoy putting something on top of my soup
so I made a batch of pie crust and cut it into small pieces for a tasty topping.


Any pie crust recipe will do.
When you have your crust rolled out and placed on a pan
take a pizza cutter and cut the dough into small square pieces.
Bake your dough and allow to cool before serving.


Sprinkle on top of your favorite soup and enjoy!
Have a delightful day!

Stephanie, your soup looks so yummy...and I have never seen anyone do this with pie crust! What a cool idea...I know I would LOVE it 'cause I love the crust of a pie the most! Your little squares are so cute...they remind me of communion bread :) My favorite soup to make is probably chicken noodle...or vegetable beef ...or maybe it's chili...lol!!

What a creative idea to use pie crust as soup topping! My favourite soup is butternut squash soup... In fact, I made some yesterday.
Hugs to you,

Debbie Harris said...

I have never seen a pie crust used for a soup topper before, such a great idea I am going to give that idea a go. Your soup looks delightful.

Hi Stephanie! I love the idea of a homemade soup topping. Thanks for the great idea. Have you tried Zuppa Toscana? It's a new favorite of ours. The original is from Olive Garden, but the copycat recipe is even better. Here's the link in case you'd like to try it sometime:

That soup looks delicious. Never thought to do that with pie crust. I sometimes sprinkle them with cinnamon sugar and cut them up. Yours would make it taste almost like a pot pie! YUM!!!!

I make a good chicken & wild rice soup that we love. xo Diana

Mari said...

The pie crust is a good idea, I've never heard of that before. Thanks for sharing!

Dee said...

Oh, your soup looks so delicious, especially with the pieces of pie crusts. That was a great idea. I love all types of soup, but I think chicken noodle is probably my favorite because it brings back so many memories... :)

The soup looks scrumptious! My mom makes a similar soup in the fall that is wonderful, and my grandma makes awesome chile! Thanks for hosting another giveaway!

What a wonderful idea! Now I know what to do with the extra dough I always end up with!

On another note, I am so sorry for the loss of your Great Grandmother. I am also envious that you had her for so long, and got the chance to know her so well. Along with that gift, comes the great pain of loss.
Hugs to you. Great big Grandma-type Hugs...

The Soup looks delicious, and thanks for the tip, I will use pie crust as a topper.

Trying to get back in my routine after the trip.

Sending love and hugs.

I hope this weekend will be a restful and joyful one for you and yours,

Good Afternoon, Stephanie!

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. You and your family will be in my prayers.

Your soup looks very yummy. I make this soup called chicken pot pie soup and I top that with little pie crusts. It is so delicious and the pie crusts stay crunchy down to the last bite! Yum!

I hope you have a lovely weekend!

Hugs,
Amy

Brenda said...

Hello Stephanie,
It is a long time since I have been over to your blog, I have only just come back recently to blogging after a long break. I am so sad to hear of your loss, it is wonderful though to know that you had a dear relative for so long and to know where she is now - thanks to our lovely Lord.
I love soup too, the main one I make is carrot and coriander which I add cream to when I reheat after storing in the freezer.
God bless you.

Gail Dixon said...

Oh no! I've missed something important. Need to go check out your previous posts.

Deborah Montgomery said...

Love homemade soup in the cooler autumn weather. My husband loves split pea, my favorite is chicken noodle. Putting little squares of pie crust on top of your soup sounds delicious.

Ida said...

Your soup looks yummy. - What a fun idea about adding little Pie crust pieces for a topping.
My favorite is Potato Soup but we also have enjoyed a Hearty Beef Barley soup lately.
