Well, soup season is finally here.

Along with other things.  Crunchy fall leaves, hot chocolate, big, comfy sweatshirts, shivering in your house because you refuse to turn on the heat {oh...just me?}, fall-scented candles, pumpkin spice lattes and so much more.

I've had two reader emails in the last few days asking for my favorite soup recipes.  How can a girl choose?

If I can't be savoring a classic bread bowl filled to the brim of creamy, rich Broccoli Cheddar at Panera Bread {by myself please} then you'll find me making a homemade batch here at home.

This Instant Pot thing still amazes me.  I've pretty much made everything you can think of in that darn, cute, amazing appliance.

Have you gotten yours yet?  And at the very least if you haven't, have you put it on your Christmas list yet?  It makes an amazing gift, because really EVERYONE benefits from it.  The one I purchased earlier this year, I now see is $10 cheaper on Amazon.  I am imagining it to continue to go down as the holidays approach.

Snatch yours now!  The version I use is HERE.

I find that my 6 QT version is perfect for our family of 5, but they do have smaller and larger versions.

Back to this stew.

It's hearty and creamy and FULL OF FLAVOR.  The veggies are nice and tender and all your picky eaters won't notice them {too much}.  The stew meat basically falls apart when it's hit with your spoon and literally melts in your mouth.

Does that description seal the deal?

If it doesn't you are pretty much dead to me.

Kinda.

This batch feeds 4-6 people, but can easily be doubled if you are feeding more people.  There is more than enough room in the pot to double it.

But, do yourself a favor and serve it with a hearty, crusty chunk of bread along the side {or grilled cheeses if the kids insist}.  You need bread to dunk into that thick broth.  It's a rule.  That was basically my kid's favorite part about dinner.

Mine too.
