Progresso Souper You Giveaway

Welcome to the first giveaway of the New Year. And if you are like many of Americans that make "health" resolutions at the beginning of every new year, then this giveaway is for you!
Progresso is doing a contest and here is their description of it:
Celebrate the New Year and a new you with Progresso Light and 100 Calorie Soups because from January 4 through March 15th, you and your readers can visit www.Progresso.com/SouperYou to enter the Progresso “Souper You Debut” contest for the chance to win a full makeover in New York City.

My Blog Spark is hosting a giveaway for blog readers! Yesterday, when I got back in the office, I had a huge box waiting for me. It had 15 cans of wonderful, yummy, healthy (some vegetarian), Progresso Soups. I don't have to buy lunches for a long time (which definitely helps out the checking account)! It also came with a beautiful blue Progresso Soup mug that had a nifty handle that fit one's thumb perfectly (for quality gripping when you are serving up a hot bowl of soup). Also included, to help with those fitness goals, was an automatic jump rope (which counted the turns for you and other information).

So, if you would like to help out your menu planning, check book, activity calendar, anything, just leave me a message saying what your fave soup is (and if it homemade, please share a recipe, because I love soups). You could win all that was mentioned above. I'll randomly pick a winner by Sunday night at 9pm. Thanks!
And, while you are on this blog, look over to the right and scroll down - I've got some yummy soups on there (I love soups year round!)

Thanks - and happy Soup-ing!

I talked about this yummy, healthy chili on facebook recently and have been meaning to share the recipe with you. This is the perfect time since you are talking about soups today:

Black Bean Chili

1 cup diced onions
1 cup bell pepper
1 lb ground beef
1½ cups beef broth
1 tbsp chili powder
1½ tsp cumin
¾ tsp oregano
½ tsp salt
⅛ tsp pepper
3 garlic cloves
2 cans diced tomatoes
2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed

Cook beef, peppers, and onion until browned. Drain and then add the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil. Simmer for 15 minutes or until slightly thick. Serve sour cream, cheese, and corn chips if you like!

My favorite soup is taco soup homemade but Progresso's Southwestern Soup is so good for zero points for 1 cup. With a half a sandwich and a cup of soup it makes a great lunch

I enjoy the Progresso Chicken Rotini. It's not quite as good as homemade, but it's definitely convenient to take to work.

I love homemade potato soup. My recipe is kind of loose:

I always make a huge quantity of mashed potatoes when I make them. Whatever is left over, I take the next night and add:

lots of milk
extra sour cream (my potatoes always have some sour cream or cream cheese in them anyway)
chopped up ham
frozen corn (optional)
some extra salt
chopped up scallions

I heat it up thoroughly and top it off with cheese and crumbled bacon if I have it.

The ultimate comfort food, in my accounting.

My favorite soup is california chicken and wild rice. I use to get it in college all the time. Too bad I have no idea how to make it! I miss it :[
