RE: Soup weather coming up
One winter, about 20 years ago (makes me feel old saying things like...about 20 years ago) I rented a house with a bunch of friends near a ski resort in upstate NY. The best part of that whole winter was my dinner at the Last Chance Cheese shop in Tannersville. Great soups with great warm breads and cheese. I haven't been back there in a long time, but can still taste their soups!
