This is supposed to be quite the week here in Israel! Not only are they predicting up to 250mm of rain in my area, they are also expecting winds up 100 km/hr. And snow in the higher elevations!
If your house is anything like mine, it has heaters, but it's pretty drafty and nearly impossible to keep warm.
We're piling on the layers, wearing our warmest socks and sweaters (I found some wool-blend socks which do a pretty good job of keeping toes warm), and walking around with steaming hot mugs in our hands.
We're drinking tea and coffee, some hot chocolate, and if I get some apple juice, we'll make mulled mock-cider.
We'll be getting filled up with toasted sandwiches and soups. And stews.
Here are some to try out:
Vegetable Stew with Eggplant and Red Lentils
Split Pea Soup
Chunky Tomato Soup with Rice
Tomato Soup with Black Beans
My Fusion Soup
Traffic Light Soup
Carrot and Red Lentil Soup
Crock Pot Tomato Soup
"Garden" Pea Soup
I hope that helps inspire you to make some soups! Please let me know what YOUR favorites are!
