Are you ready for a ‘Soup’er Bowl‘ Party this coming weekend?

It has been tradition at my Sister’s house to host a ‘Superbowl’ Party along with our favorite Soups and fixin’s.

With Mom, my 2 Sisters and my Sister-in-law, my Niece and myself ~ we’ve got the makings for a delicious meal, each bringing our favorites!

I’m not quite sure if any of us watch the actual game (well, maybe the guys do)….but we sure gather-’round the table for good eats and good conversation!

Here are two of my favorite soups!

Cheesy Chicken Chili Soup
