The Soup Nazi
Every year, about this time, when the leaves are turning gorgeous colors and the air gets nippy and I have to turn the heat on, my thoughts turn to.....soup. I like soup. Only home-made soup though. I like making it from scratch. I like trying new soups. My plan this year, as it is every year, is to make a big pot of soup for dinner on Sunday night and use it for lunches for the whole week. When I was a kid, we had soup on Sunday nights. One week my Mom would make soup, the next my Memere would make it. We ate it with buttered Hi-Ho crackers sitting in front of the TV watching wrestling. Memere liked wrestling. Unfortunately, as with most well-laid plans, I've never followed through and actually made soup on Sunday nights all winter to have for dinner and then lunches. THIS will be the "Year of the Soup". I've written it here, on my blog, therefore it will happen. Anyone have any good recipes???
