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.
