I Want Soup!


Let me repeat, I want soup! I! Want! Soup! Oh by the way, did I mention that I want soup?

Well I do. Only I don’t have any. Not frozen, not canned, not even dry mix. Nope, no soup of any kind. (Scroll down and see the blog about eating all the food that’s been hanging out in my house.)

Options –

1. Call and have some delivered. No, I don’t think so. The places that deliver don’t have soup that I want. Yes, I admit I may be being somewhat picky here but the wrong soup will be unacceptable and is equivalent to having no soup at all since I won’t eat it.

2. Go to the bar on the corner where they serve most excellent soup and get some. I called and they have Italian Wedding soup. Um, borderline acceptable, though not my first choice. Besides that would require me getting dressed in clothes that are presentable enough to wear in public and Italian Wedding is not acceptable enough to bother going to that hassle.

3. Go out somewhere else, either another eatery or the grocery store. Believe it or not there are canned soups that would do tonight but see reason above. I’m comfy and there is very little, including the perfect soup that would inspire me enough to change.

Before you ask why I didn’t stop along the way home I’ll tell you. I didn’t take any money to work with me today so I couldn’t. So unless there’s a soup fairy willing to go foraging for me I guess I’m soupless for this evening. I may as well give up and head to bed now. Sad.

I'm a lifelong soup lover. Ask my kids, I want soup before bed most nights. We make a lot of chicken vegetable soup here. And I used to love alphabet soup. I also love the wonton soup from our local Chinese restaurant. Sometimes I just pick up or have delivered a quart of wonton soup if we don't feel like making soup.

Ahhh, I had a soup craving last night and fortunately had some. YAY! I tend to keep a good supply of it for emergencies.
