January is National Soup Month in the United States. Put the kettle on!
What a wonderful reason to warm hearts and innards with great goulashes, beautiful broths and super stews.
With winter winds blowing outside, a marvelous mug of bouillon, a bowl of borscht or a brew of savory stock fits the bill perfectly for a lovely lunch or a cozy supper.
Save the chilled gazpacho and vichyssoise for spring, when the mercury starts to rise.

Just watch out for slurpers as you sit down with your soup. As humorist Bennett Cerf (1898 – 1971) wrote, “Good manners [are] The noise you don't make when you're eating soup.”
