In January it’s so nice, while slipping on the sliding ice, to sip hot chicken soup with rice,
Sipping once sipping twice, sipping chicken soup with rice.
In February it will be
My snowman’s anniversary
With cake for him and soup for me
Happy once, Happy twice, Happy chicken soup with rice.
~Children’s author, Maurice Sendak
We think Mr.Sendak had the right idea. Nothing is more welcome in the dead of winter than the lively flavors in a steamy bowl of soup. Especially one of these:
Chicken & Wild Rice Soup - Elegant in its simplicity, this light creamed soup is absolutely delicious, tinged with sherry and garnished with slivered almonds. Hearty without being heavy.
Red Lentil Stew – Thick, bold, and bright! With tomatoes and carrots to keep the color vivid, this flavorful stew borrows from the cuisine of Mexico with a bit of cumin and cilantro. A squeeze of lemon adds complexity.
Brocolli Cheddar Soup - Loaded with brocolli with the wonderful punch of sharp cheddar.; An easy-to-make, soul-warming bowl of deliciousness.
Winter Vegetable Tarte Tatin - One of the prettiest dishes you’ll ever see. Chock full of colorful root vegetables and chard, A pleasure for your palate.
Buttered Pear Crisp - Fresh pears, a old-fashioned buttery oat topping and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Served with vanilla bean ice cream.
