It's insanely cold here: around 7 degrees (F). It won't be much warmer tomorrow; I don't yet know what the forecast looks like for the weekend.
I'm making bean and chicken soup this afternoon -- specifically, Bean Cuisine's White Bean Provencial. It's not the cheapest thing in the world to make -- the mix itself is $4 at World Market, plus it takes three pieces of chicken, some fresh vegetables, a can of tomatos, a few containers of chicken stock, and some wine -- but I find that it goes a long way (three meals or so for two people). Soup with buttered hearty bread is probably my favorite winter meal.
