Most awesome soup

February 24, 2008

Cooking, Journal, Lauren

So yummy...

Lloyd is sick again – surprise! (We’re the house of germs.) The Soup Fairy came and took care of us, though. Did you know that Annette makes the best potato soup in the world? Lloyd absolutely loves it, and for him it has become the gold standard of soups. Long ago I tried to make potato soup, which I equated with ‘chowder’, and when he stared at the first spoonful he said, “I don’t think it’s supposed to look like gravy.”

I have never made it since.

However, on the off chance that I ever want to try again, I think Annette should post her recipe here. Don’t you all think so? Let’s give her a little encouragement, people!

    Okay, is Lloyd really sick, or is he using this time to figure out his fantasy baseball draft? I see the notes under the soup.

      Fantasy Baseball waits for no man. My weekend was entirely composed of (a) sleep until I couldn’t sleep anymore (b) lookup some fantasy accounting baseball information. I woke up this morning at about 1:00am in a cold sweat. It was really disgusting (and, even worse, uncomfortable).

    If you can’t have a snow day, you’d better have a sick day.

    Can you, will you write it down,
    Can you, will you bring it to our town?

    I cannot, should not on a blog,
    I cannot, should not go where there’s smog.

    Your requests make me feel like fame,
    Even with my secret ingredients, it wouldn’t be the same!
