With regard to my previous post...
First of all, in answer to Snappy Di's question, the noodles in the soup are from the grocery freezer case. I used to make my own but why do that when the frozen ones are so good!
The soup was great. Even picky eaters like my chicken noodle soup - onions, celery and all!
I make a mean pot of vegetable beef soup too. In my opinion (and the picky eaters aren't going to like this one) the secret ingredients to vegetable soup is to add a small turnip cut into small cubes and a little less than 1/4 small head of cabbage, slivered. You don't even know it's there but wow does it add flavor. Oh, and a little sugar. Just a little goes a long ways.
Now the answer to how you can tell whose bowl of soup it was. Sorry Land and Iggy, the lefty-righty handy thingy is wrongy! The answer is that I dislike soup spoons with a passion. They are way too big for my mouth. So, if you ever see a teaspoon rather than a soup spoon in a bowl of soup in this house, it is MINE!
Are you staying warm? I just got in from running errands and work. It is snowing quite nicely out there. Ugh. It is also cold, but then I'm not going to say a word about that because we've been warned that it is only going to get colder. Much colder. Oops. I think I just said a word about that.
Well, it is going to be spaghetti and french bread for supper tonight. Sure wish I could share with you all.
Stay safe and stay warm.
