When my children were small, I remember trying to coerce them into having something nice and HOT before going out trick-or-treating on Halloween. It rarely worked. I remember trying Dinner-In-A-Pumpkin, and they just thought it was weird to bake something we had on our front porch all lit up with candles. (Ring a bell with anyone?)

I found it was easier to have an early Halloween dinner (or a late lunch), with all those fun finger foods. I then put on a few soups in the early afternoon for the adults to enjoy at their leisure later that night. I even found the kids following their noses to the kitchen for soup - but only after lining up their "stash" of candy and conducting Wall Street-style candy trading with their siblings.
Stay warm this Halloween night. To help you do that - here are a few of our recent soup favorites...
