*Hobo Soup is still available. I don't buy canned soup, but this label is terrific.
It's officially autumn and I'm thinking about sweaters and leaves falling and tasty soup. It sets my heart a flutter to see soup on the menu, and who doesn't love to ask, "What's your soup today?" Isn't it grand when the most American Mom & Pop restaurant offering steak and fried chicken decides to get a bit fancy by offering 'Soup du Jour'?
Ten to order:
Manhattan Clam Chowder - made with tomatoes not cream!
Matzo Ball Soup - the ball sitting alone in broth, all zen-like (no mish-mash noodles or rice!)
Italian Wedding Soup - with escarole and tiny meatballs
Potato and Leek Soup - also known as Vichyssoise, best served chilled.
Borscht - Beets, mmm. Lovely to look at, delightful to know.
Lentil Soup - Hearty and rustic.
Corn Soup - pureed to smooth perfection
Onion Soup - topped with cheese and French bread, yes!
Thai Coconut Soup - there's chicken and veggies,but the coconut makes them memorable.
German Cabbage Soup - so...fragrant! Tasty times for the unsung vegetable.
