I'm in a real soup mode. It's very snowy here today, and this is our 4th fairly good-sized snow in a month. There is really no kitchen aroma that beats simmering soup on a cold winter's day. Ever since we had Schi at our favorite local bistro the other night we've been researching and cooking soup. Schi is a Russian soup made with bacon, carrots, cabbage, tomato and venison. Well, really , there are all kinds of Schi. I think it means soup in Russian. There are lots of pretty food blogs with posts about soup...so I thought I'd share some. The above photo is from Orangette, a food blog most people probably already know and love, but I liked the recipe for split-pea soup featured a few posts in from the top. I made yellow split-pea soup with ham, pretty much the same recipe, but using yellow (more mellow) split-peas instead of green. It was sooooo good.

Then I found Hearth Bird, a nice food blog that had this terrific looking Russian sour cabbage soup.

I think if you want to really research soup recipes, go to Seriously Soupy a blog that has this wonderful looking Ribollita.

And, I just read that it is National Soup Month! So get into your kitchen and make some soup. I hope you have a cute kitchen assistant like I do.

Yum! I'm making minestrone tomorrow by Alice Waters. I've never heard of Orangette but became an instant fan when she mentions The Breakfast Book. My copy just came in the mail two days ago! Funny coincidence.
