Twofer Day: Soup + Pie

Posted in General Interest by melissamccart on January 23, 2008

soup.jpgLoulies reminds us it’s National Soup Swap Day, the perfect time of year to make a kale and andouille chowder that’s among my favorites. 

Looking for other recipes? DC blog The Gracious Bowl has an extensive list if you’re looking for soups to swap. And the collection from Austin’s Soup Peddler is terrific, too. Recipes are arranged by month; January is Mexican hominy Posole Sonora, Iraqi Shorbat Rumman with pomegranate, Florida fish chowder, and black bean.

Strange enough, today is also National Pie Day, where Ed Levine on Serious Eats lists favorite pies around the country.  Breadline is cited as the home of Washington’s most pielicious pies, but I think that may be outdated.  I’m partial to those from Baked and Wired or the farmer’s market take-home strawberry rhubarb pies.

Have a favorite on this soup and pie holiday?  Chime in in the comments.

    I love soup. I could eat it every day! I even invented one out of flat prosecco, half a can of coconut milk, and chicken sausage when I needed something fast and I hadn’t been to the market. Check it out: http://www.thefoodscribe.com.

    sounds great,April…problem is, my prosecco doesn’t last long enough to get flat!
