Oh I love bean soup. Thanks for the new recipe.

Angie Wood

Soup and the fall.....Love it! Be back tomorrow!


Warm soup on a cold day is the perfecto combo. If only the weather would turn cold!

I know what you mean about bean soup. I was at a quilting retreat recently and someone made soup with two different kinds of beans. I was hesitant to try it but had to be polite. It was absolutely delicious!


Nothing better than warm steaming soup on a chilly day! Thanks for sharing!

Are kids too funny? Our grandson cannot stand the school pizza. But come to Mimi's house - the first question is: "Have any pizza". Kids are such fun.

Happy Fall.


I love the apples at this time of year, especially the macintoshs, they are so tangy, one bite and your mouth is puckering in anticipation of the next bite. What a great recipe to try, you are right, you never know until you try it.


Ben soup is something I haven't try, I will definitely try this recipe

So funny. When you said that Picky Eaters know.. I had to laugh because I just KNOW that I'm not going to like something without even seeing it.

I never had bean soup. I am curious about it. I took a look at the recipe and I never heard of "calico beans". This sounds mighty interesting! I'll have to see if I can find some. Thanks for sharing this recipe!


Thank you so much for the recipe!! Polly

Robin Crittenden

great looking recipe. Where do you find Calico beans? I don't think I've seen them in VA


I'm going to take your word for a child, my mom made Navy bean soup because my dad just loved it, but when I walked in after school & smelled that smell, I started looking for somewhere else to have dinner! Unfortunately, I still feel the same way: can't understand what people see in any kind of beans. sigh


I have some great wheat rolls in the freezer that were just calling out for a soup companion. Thanks!


Hmmm...not a bean soup fan...but maybe I should give it another try. :) Thanks!

I love soup! Thanks so much!

Loris Mills

Thank you for the recipe :-)
I've checked out Kari's blog but can't seem to leave a comment there. It won't pull up a screen for it. Please send my regards.


It's raining today and this soup will be fantastic. Thanks!


My MIL did something similar with pea soup, which I always knew I would never like. She didn't say anything about it, but looked at my FIL, who did say "you'll try this" - he was 6'7", I'm 5'3" - I didn't argue ... and I'm glad I didn't! I really wish I had asked her for that recipe!

Kelly Jackson

I really enjoy soup. Thanks for the recipe :)


Lovie Ball

I enjoy soup and sandwich during the fall and winter. And can relate to being a picky eater - still won't eat beets. LOL


Sounds good and I am looking for some delicious soup recipes.


I love soup. I miss it in the summer. It just doesn't taste as good unless its cool outside.

Mary Jo

Thank you for the special bean soup recipe and story! I will always cherish it!


Never question the MIL. :) One of my favorite childhood memories is my mother cooking navy bean soup on cold rainy days. Cozy! Thanks for sharing :)


I looked for Calico beans today - found "15 bean soup" beans. They are colorful - so maybe that's what Calico Beans are. Thanks for the recipe. Kitty
