soup season

Still no snow yet, but now the forecast is for 4-5 inches tomorrow night with more to come later in the week. Today was grey and wet with a steadily dropping temperature. Weather like this must mean soup.
I made the first soup of this winter last weekend, an old standby from my grandma. I had leftover cabbage from that, as well as some ham that needed to come out of the freezer, and the result was this cabbage and white bean soup. It turned out quite tasty, but I had to cook the beans way longer than the recipe suggests.
By the way, I heart Epicurious, because you can type in the main ingredients and what sort of dish you want in the search terms and it usually gives you something quite usable. (I found the above recipe by searching for “cabbage ham soup.”) The user ratings are also usually spot-on.
