In November, during the craziness that was preparing for a group of 20 at Thanksgiving, David suggested Soup January. A month of soups! Initially, I thought it was a fantastic idea. I love soup, and cold, wintery January is an ideal month for soup making. But the more I thought about it, the more uncomfortable I became. I hate being nailed down and cooking is no exception. What if I craved falafel on January 18th? What if I just didn’t feel like involved soup-making?
I decided to get over it, and lay down some ground-rules to allow for a bit of flexibility. I also talked David into planning ahead for the month, so we wouldn’t be caught off-guard without ingredients.
Of course, I haven’t planned anything yet. I will do it during the long weekend. But I am open to suggestions! What are your favorite soup recipes?
