Top 5 Soup and Stew Picks For Fall

One of the many things I love about Fall is the cooler weather.  I'm a big fan of oversized sweaters and thick socks.  I love cuddling up under a blanket and sipping hot drinks.  The change in season has put me in the mood to look up some new soup and stew recipes.  Thanks to Pinterest it was easy for me to find 5 new combinations to stir up.  Starting from the top:  1. Roasted Tomato Basil Soup, 2. Slow Cooker Baked Potato Soup, 3. Roasted Sweet Corn and Tomato Soup, 4. Hearty Chicken Stew with Butternut Squash & Quinoa, and last but not least, 5. Creamy White Bean Stew with Thick Cut Bacon and Vegetables.
