I'm not saying that summer is over, but at least the weather is getting a little cooler. In another few weeks, soup for dinner won't seem like the crazy idea it is during the heat of the summer. That's when we dig out the recipes for main- dish soups like cioppino (pictured), salmon chowder or Asian-inspired chicken noodle soup, or we pair a smaller bowl of soup with a sandwich or salad. Either way, I look forward to cooler nights with soup.
