5 soups for the cold winter nights
Unfortunately, Summer is gone and we are getting ready for the long cold winter. As it was said in “Game of Thrones” ..Winter is coming! So what better to get ready with 5 soups you can have at home when outside is raining, snowing…or in general is not summer…
You see as a Greek, i am used to complain about the weather no matter how many years i would have lived in London. Nevertheless, i found out that food can make things a little bit better when the weather outside is cloudy and you have that annoying drizzle.
So here we go!

You can barely go wrong with this one. Meatballs in a egg and lemon sauce. This was always one of my favourites when i was young and the enjoyment was even bigger when my mother managed to make it in a more thicker sauce. Try it and i am sure you will enjoy it
