Homemade Bread Bowls with Wild Rice Soup

My house smelled divine today!  I made homemade bread bowls and my homemade Wild Rice Soup to be served with in them.  It was a really great dinner.  My husband kept telling me over and over again how delicious it was. 

I have made this soup recipe for many years and my family loves it, and I have received many compliments from others.   So I decided to share these recipe's with all of you.  The bread bowl recipe I just made for the first time today, and you can find this recipe on my Recipe blog that I co-author, Simple Meals for Busy FamiliesThe soup recipe will also be posted there later.  I wanted to share with all of you first. 

Wild Rice Soup

1 medium onion, chopped
2 celery ribs, diced
2 medium carrots, diced
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup flour
4 cups chicken or turkey broth
2 cups cooked wild rice
2 cups half & half cream
2 cups diced chicken or turkey (I use canned chicken breast. I have also used 1 cup chicken, 1 cup chopped ham to change it up a little)
1 tsp dried parsley
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

In dutch oven or soup kettle over medium heat saute' onion, celery and carrots in butter until onion is transparent.  Reduce heat. Blend in flour; cook and stir for 2 min.  Gradually add broth, stirring constantly.  Bring to boil; cook for 1 min.  Reduce heat.  Add remaining ingredients; simmer for 20 min. 

Like I said, this soup served in those bread bowls made for a wonderful dinner.  Try it out! Enjoy it!  And then tell me what you think.
