Tonight I’m trying this recipe for Soup and Stories. It’s a Greek Lemon Rice and Chicken recipe found here.
The folks coming tonight can have eggs and meat, so this recipe works when you aren’t serving vegans or vegetarians.
I’m amazed at how gathering people isn’t as exhausting or stressful as one would think. If we’re already making a pot of soup, there’s no reason we can’t simply double (or triple) the recipe. It will take us the same amount of time, right?
Finally, I’m realizing the benefits of winter soups not only for nutrition; cooking soup in your kitchen humidifies the air, generates a wonderful aroma, and connects you to so many cultures and histories that gathered around to ladle out bowls of soup on cold nights.
