@ehBeth,
Made a great soup. Threw in butterball turkey sausages.

Put in too much rice, so added liquid and adjusted seasonings.

Need a new soup idea.

A friend's birthday is next week. I'm going to go to her house and cook her a big pot of soup.

I'm thinking something involving chard and sausage would be good, but I'm open to suggestions.

@ehBeth,
smoked salmon chowder is a great wintry hearty soup. (The salmon and cream go in last so the cream doesn't separate and the salmon doesn't get mushy.

@farmerman,
that's a good clue

I'm not a fan of salmon but smoked trout or whitefish gets a big thumbs up.

This could work as I'm trying to encourage her to have more green things in her life.

@farmerman,
Do you like Cincinnati-style? it's definitely got a different taste and is certainly served in a really different way. Over spaghetts , under crushed oyster crackers and shredded cheese. I love the flavour combo but it may be an acquired taste.

@ehBeth,
Im ready for it.Can you hare the recipe? Is it a sweeter flavor than the Texas style? Im starting to sautee beef cubes and some 80% fat hmburger. I usually load in some plum tomato chunks and asjust the spices "by ear". I wanna have some form of recipe to hang on to so I can maybe adjust stuff here nd there, depending on the guests.

Its coldened up here so Mrs F suggested chili and Im the usul chilicook

@farmerman,
I have an old one in my notebook. Will look for a similar online version.

They're all variations on a funky idea.

I'd say sweeter. I think of it as almost Greek-style spaghetti sauce.

change the crushed tomatoes to tomato paste
leave off the cumin - I've never used it - learned it from a Mennonite cook who lived in Ohio in the 1940's - no cumin!

I cannot stand cumin. Too many years in the mines working with sweaty BO exuding miners. Probably me too .

@farmerman,
the original of this recipe didn't use it

seems like trendy chefs want to add it to everything

it's definitely got a Greek/Macedonian vibe

Sounds good. I'll try it sans cumin, which I don't hate but also don't need.

@farmerman,
tried the additions for Cincinnati chili. I skipped cumin and the cinnamon (so it wouldnt taste like a "dessert curry". It was very very good. Mrs F said, next time, along with the hamburger, were gonna add Andouie sausage bite size instead of beef chunks .

Thank you. Theres a lot to work with in that recipe.
