    Chicken salad sounds pretty good.

    Made a really good pork belly stew last night.
    I cut the pork belly into about 1" squares, took a searing hot pan and carmalized the outsides. Being pork belly, that created a lot of rendered fat in the pan. Poured out half that out, then cooked some onions, celery and carrots till soft. Then I put in about maybe 2/3 cup of white wine and reduced in half and set aside.
    Cut some potatoes down, took about 2 cups of chicken stock (make my own) into a pot along with a can of diced tomatoes and all ingredients including reduced wine sauce.
    Added some thyme, 3 bay leaves and S&P. Brought to a boil and cooked on low for about 2 hours. (necessary to soften the pork belly). Added a little bit of water about half way through then closed the lid.
    Turned out great!

    Garlic Soup:
    In a soup pot sautee in 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil or vegetable oil some choped onions and garlic, pour chicken stock or hot water with bouillon cube or chicken powder, then soy milk and bring to a creaming boil, then lower the heat and add day old bread crumbled in to thicken the soup and fresh parsley or parsley flakes, maybe some salt to season if the stock or chicken powder didn't already add enough salt.
    It will be one of your favorite tasting easy prepared soups once you try it.

    Nothing makes a house smell better than soup on the stove and sourdough bread in the oven.

    Since the weather has turned I have made - Italian Wedding soup, butternut squash bisque, tomato soup, vegetable soup and last night carrot soup.
    I love soup and thankfully so does Bonzi.

    I cook with cabbage but not soups. There is an unstuffed cabbage soup that I have tried but it was so bland there was no saving it. When I was little, my mom would put cabbage and kielbasa with some water or chicken broth and a lot of salt and pepper together.
