I did not know this but …

For those of you who live in the United States, the 23rd of January is National Soup Swap day (via Not Martha).

In winter soup is good.

I learned a new thing just now … how to make a phrase a link with the button on the toolbar. That was fun.

    If only I had known, I would have sent you my recipe for really good real French Onion Soup! I made some last weekend, it was yummy!

    Not a fan of FOS. My step-MIL taught me to make split pea soup. It was yummy!

    Here was my soup discovery for last year. I think I will go make now.

    Egg, Lemon, and Rice Soup (Avgolemono Soupa)
    From Sunset

    Greek American Paige Poulos uses a rich homemade stock for this classic Greek soup, but canned broth makes a good version too. Prep and Cook Time: about 30 minutes.

    2 quarts chicken broth
    1/2 cup long-grain white rice
    Salt and pepper
    4 large eggs
    1/3 cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice

    1. In a medium pan over high heat, bring broth and rice to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until rice is tender to bite, 15 to 20 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat.

    2. In a bowl, whisk eggs, lemon juice, and 1/4 cup water to blend. Gradually whisk in about a cup of the hot broth mixture. Then gradually whisk egg mixture into broth and rice mixture. Stir over low heat just until hot, 1 to 3 minutes; don’t boil or soup may curdle. Ladle into bowls.
