When the weather outside is frightful, I think soup is most delightful.
That was certainly the case this past Saturday, and the next few days promise more of the same.
This mushroom soup is another one of my favorites. It's a very rich soup, so we don't eat it too often, but when we do, it pairs well with some nice, crusty bread and a salad with lightly dressed, flavorful greens, such as chicory or arugula.
If you're looking for a more substantial meal, however, you can always have it as your first course.
