In these frigid winter days, soup is such a blessing. Take a few meaty soup bones, dredge in a little kosher salt and brown in butter. Some fresh garlic is good and good for you, so throw that in. Smells soooooo gooooooood!! Now deglaze your pan with a little wine, red or sherry, and add a dash of Worcestershire Sauce for good measure. Add enough water to cover and simmer until the meat practically falls off the bone. Take out the bones, leave the meat. Now you have a perfectly lovely, delicious and healthy broth. At this point, you can use your imagination and create a fabulous soup that your family will love. Not up for soup? Freeze the broth in ice cube trays for later. No more bouillion cubes for you! Banish the cans of broth! You have now had real food...you may never want to go back. The best thing to do now is make a nice bread to go along with it and invite your neighbors over. They can bring the salad...or not. Let your love be sincere...practice hospitality. It is good....Providentially!
