It's a quiet Sunday evening, I'm home after being out in the chilly air, and it's time to make a pot of borscht. Yum.
I got my mom hooked on borscht, and I haven't made it since she passed away in 2001. I guess it's about time, eh? If you're broke (like me) and in need of a good, hot inexpensive meal, this is a killer soup - and damn easy to make. So, I'm off to get that distinctively Russian smell going in my kitchen. Beets and onions and and cabbage and carrots and $2.19 worth of beef stew meat. (And some light sour cream to top the bowl.)
That will keep me warm tonight - and for a few more nights to come...
