Soup, and Things That Stick to Your Ribs
You can't have soup in the spring, or the summer. Soup is a winter food (or I guess fall, but that's another halfway season for which I have limited patience). And there is nothing like a bowl of soup to make you feel warm inside and out. The French Onion Soup by Deb Perelman of Smitten Kitchen is one of the most perfect soups out there and can not be eaten any other time than winter. Or at least it shouldn't be.
It's 1:45 now. The rain drops are falling fast and you can't even differentiate one from another. Every snowflake might be unique, but each drop of rain is the same. Rain is the most communist of precipitation forms.
