As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

Soup On Tuesday: Week 3

Another winter Tuesday, which means it was the night to make soup--this time Pizza Soup!  It was a new one for us, but it was a hit for our pizza-loving family...and quite quick and easy.

Tonight's soup...

1 cup chopped onion
1 lb. Italian sausage
3 cups water
2 15-oz. jars pizza sauce
1 7-oz. package pepperoni, chopped
1 32-oz. can diced tomatoes
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
shredded mozzarella
  1. In a large soup pot, over medium heat, cook Italian sausage and onion. 
  2. Add water, pizza sauce, pepperoni, tomatoes, and Italian seasoning.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Before serving, stir in Parmesan.  Garnish with shredded mozzarella. 

Next week, I'll be experimenting with a "copy cat" recipe from one of my favorite places.  Hmmmm...maybe I can convince our resident baker to make some kind of bread each Tuesday to go with our soup.  A good idea, yes?


  1. Hmmm, pizza soup sounds wonderful and with a nice loaf of fresh bread...oh, yes, the resident baker has her work cut out for her.

  2. This sounds delicious! And I do think your baker needs to try breads on Tuesday!

    I should write this one down as my gang really loves pizza!


  3. Cheryl, I enlarged your picture so I could get a better view of the soup. Oh my. It DOES look scrumptuous! It actually looks better than pizza! The next time we have a soup dinner at church, you will be at a loss as to which new recipe to bring! I think this one would be a hit!
