Remember when we did the Chocolate Chip Cookie Contest?
It was a huge success and we got lots of requests to hold another contest. So here we are.
Now that Fall is in the air, we're in the mood to eat soup for dinner. 
The only problem is, our collection of soup recipes is very limited. 
And in my husband's opinion, soup has to be hearty to count it as a meal.
So we are on a quest. To find the best soup recipes out there.
We are hoping you will help us!

To Participate:
1. Email your favorite soup recipe to sofestive@gmail.com
2. Be sure to include any special directions.

We will be making the recipes we receive
and ALL of the recipes that become a favorite* will receive a prize.

A favorite soup is described as:
1. One that we want to make again
2. One that is added to our list of favorite meals
3. One that is not based on cream of ___ condensed soup
4. One that is fairly simple and quick to make

Of course, we will try and keep this as unbiased as possible.
My husband will be the ultimate judge (since he won't know who's recipe it is),
but it will need to pass my approval as well.

Now get busy and send in those souper recipes. 
The deadline is this Sunday, September 30th.
You can email them to sofestive@gmail.com.

pear & apple crisp [recipe]

There are lots of signs that fall is coming. Having a bucket full of pears is one of them! We can't eat them fast enough, so I whipped up a pear and apple crisp. It was delightful and tasted of fall. Want to make one? Follow this easy recipe:

Pear + Apple Crisp
9-10 pears, peeled and chopped
1 apple, chopped
2 spoonfuls of sugar and a dash of salt
1 1/2 cups oatmeal
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup flour
dash of cinnamon
1/2 cup butter, melted

Directions: Grease a 9x13 pan. Spread apples and pears on the bottom. Sprinkle sugar and salt over the fruit, then stir to coat. In a separate bowl, combine oatmeal, brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon together. Pour melted butter over this crumb mixture and stir until it is a crumble-like texture. Put crumb mixture on top of fruit. Add more pieces of butter on top if you desire. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes. Cool and eat plain or with ice cream.
