There was a new report that came out recently saying that canned soups can be harmful. (when are canned foods NOT being reported as harmful?)
My kids love canned soups. They love going into the closet grabbing a can when they need s snack and heating it up in the microwave.
Recently I thought of a better idea, and cheaper! I had bought a rotiserie chicken from Walmart. (And FYI, the cold chicken is a better deal than the hot one, it was almost $2 cheaper) After dinner, I boiled the chicken and made a stock out of it, then I made a chicken noodle soup out of it. I portioned out bowls of soup on leftover food containers, and froze them. Now when someone wants a bowl of soup, just take one out of the freezer and heat it up in the microwave. It may take longer than canned soup, but its healthier and cheaper.
