This card came from Diana in Tomsk who told me she regularly cooks borsch. I imagine a nice hot soup is the perfect winter warmer in Western Siberia. I liked the sound of what she serves with it dumplings, mmm, in Russian, vareniki (dough with stuffing inside - could be potatoes, cabbage, cherry or cottage cheese). I am not a big fan of the beetroot but do like them pickled and there are all sorts things that can be pickled on this postcard. As winter approaches and the nights draw in perhaps ones thoughts would turn to a steaming samovar with a continual supply of tea for everyone.
