January 22, 2011: Soup It Is and There's a Quiz!

Tonight, I am once again on call at the hospital and that means, "Fend for yourself." Having eaten from the sandwich trough twice this week already, I proactively brought some soup. Campbell's soup and one of their "kettle style" selections: Chicken and Tuscan Bean Soup.

I totally love soup and in the winter, I often make soup once or twice a week. It is so homey and warming and really healthy. It isn't that easy to make soup unhealthy. But it can be done. When I was sick a couple of months ago, I could not eat and I discovered that broth is incredibly salty. When I got to where I could hold down some solids, I started shopping all over the soup aisle. I discovered that nearly all soups are very salty. I couldn't eat fats either, and I discovered LOTS of soups are fatty. But this particular Campbell's soup is RELATIVELY less fatty and has only a modicum of salt in it. And it tastes really good. It isn't what I would make at home, but as a product for "the masses," a certain amount of blandness is probably necessary. Overall, though, I would give it a good solid B as a grade for taste.

So here is your CALL NIGHT QUIZ and tonight, the topic will be not just soup, but CAMPBELL'S SOUP.

  1. 2 for 5. I have a hard time believing Andy Warhol wasn't being ironic with the painting. The other was a lucky guess.

    I'm pretty sure we can make soup unhealthy. I'd say half of our broth is usually heavy cream. Yum.

  2. Well, I don't blame you for the cream. Even if I don't have cream in the soup, I am guilty of sour cream "dollops" on a pretty regular basis.
    Even if you don't think you did well on the "quiz," it appears you still have the winning score.
    I might ask for some technical advice when I see you next on getting these pictures to scale :)
