I just went through my loose recipes and gathered together my soup recipes. Finally! yay But, it bro't up a question. Is chili "soup"? Is stew "soup"? Are the soupy recipes we put over rice "soup"?

It doesn't *really* matter, I suppose. I read that Beef Bourguignon is a "classic French soup"! I would think it's a stew (but I didn't even think to add it to my list of soups). Soups with a "gravy" seem like stew but then, are soups with white sauce also stews?

Ah well. Can't wait to start having soups more regular again!

In Spanish we have more words than just soup and stews, there is

Potaje, guisado, sopa, sopon, caldo, sancocho, estofao, asopao. For me, if you have to use a spoon to eat it and its chunky, its a stew, if its creamy, watery or has small vegetables its a soup.

One of those Spanish words is for broth, so there is another name in English for something you eat with a spoon.

When DD was younger, she defined "Soup" as anything you could make in the Dutch Oven (which covers most of what I make! ) She LOVES "soup" btw : )

OTOH, the first time BIL met me, we were having Greek Fasolia (Bean Soup/stew like this http://stuffedveggies.blogspot.com/2012 ... achni.html ) and I referred to it as "Soup." He was momentarily concerned that I was insulting the cooking!
