Soup's On

Ever since the weather turned, SOB has been manically making soup. Actually, he's been making stock which will later be turned into soup. At least twice a week he walks through the door with seeping packages. One day it was chicken backs, another day it was the femur of a cow sawed into two inch sections. He now has an official 'guy' for bones. I think he might be Amish.

With the chicken backs he made tortilla soup and cream of mushroom. Tonight we're having French onion made with the beef stock. Next week we'll probably have beef barely. And I can't even imagine how happy he'll be after Thanksgiving with an entire turkey carcass.

Every soup he makes is delicious. Beyond delicious, even. He always says that if he ever opens a restaurant, it would be all he would serve. The only problem is that he always makes enough for a family of 17. Which means I've been eating soup at almost every meal for the last two weeks. The other night I was in the tub and I wasn't truly able to relax because I felt like I was in a giant bowl of soup. With the latest batch of beef stock, I asked him to freeze half of it. He agreed, but we still have at least two or three days worth of soup to go.

I shouldn't complain, really. We've had an abundance of soup weather around these parts. Also most of his soups are healthy, especially when compared to the other things he makes. I just feel like I need to chew something.

Maybe I'll fish out some of Sam's old teething toys.

soup *is* tasty, but I can see how it would get old.

You're so lucky that he cooks. We figured out that Mr. C hasn't made himself something hot to eat since 1997.

I don't know that anyone in my household/family would know how to make stock, let alone a whole soup that didn't come out of a can with a darling little kid on the label!

Himself won't eat soup because of his moustache! It is apparently too tricky. I make pumpkin soup and that's about it. You are so lucky to have a soup maker of variety about the place. Freeze and enjoy later. The soup I mean...not the soupmaker...oh forget it........

Once upon a very long time ago (namely, right after BG and I got married), BG was seriously considering opening up one of these . I just know that if we had stuck around longer the good Dr. & BG would have become the best of friends...!
