Family Meals Month: Simple Beef Noodle Soup
It's WEEK THREE of Family Meals Month and I don't know about you, but I am dreaming of cooler temperatures and staying cozy with my family. Those feelings and the fact that we are quickly approaching fall inspired me to share one of my very favorite comfort meals this week. Soup and Stew season is one of my favorites for several different reasons. One being that a nice big pot of soup can be enjoyed multiple times in one week, making it the ultimate family meal. I hope that you enjoy this simple classic Beef Noodle Soup recipe paired with some Cheesy Jalapeño Cornbread with your family this week and that it becomes a staple in your kitchen this fall! My goal is that your family stays strong with family meals even beyond this September. I know that thanks to Covid 19 that we have been in the kitchen a lot more than we might've been but I know that our families have greatly benefitted from the extra time together at home and around our dinner tables.
