thanks for stopping by my blog - i've made a version of this soup both stovetop and pressure cooker many times before (i add a chopped zucchini, btw!) - and it is truly a winner.
we are hikers, not really skiers - which is why we spend most of the winter here on molokai. we usually get out on skis once or twice and say yeah. that was scary. good thing our knees and ankles and wrists are still intact! and then go back to the snowshoes. although our experience living in the methow is usually that we've spent so much time clearing the snow that we are pooped and not interested in more outdoor time:-) 7 days ago
