    Default Well so much for having a quick cup o' soup...

    Was doing my daily catch-up here and started reading a couple of the
    threads about 'quick & easy meals'... Made me peckish, (and it was
    getting close to my brunch time) so I thought, "Why don't I just go and
    make a "cup o' soup" and a slice of toast."

    Went into the kitchen and scratched in the cupboards. Hmmmm. Chicken and
    noodle or vegetable soup? Then I remembered I had some left over
    chicken...

    OK, What veggies do I have? Ah, potatoes, carrots, onions - no leeks.
    But wait! - should still be some in the garden. Head off to the veggie
    patch - find a couple of leeks, what else? Aha! some flat leafed
    parsley won't hurt either. Head back to kitchen. Clean leeks. Chop,
    chop, chop. Find some some chicken stock. Bit of garlic (of course), s
    & p - and some other dried herbs.............

    I now have a big pot of chicken and vegetable soup gently simmering on
    the stove - which should be ready to eat in a couple of hours - but of
    course now I'm not just peckish, I'm hungry.

    and a cup of tea (maybe).

    Just had a bowl of the abovementioned soup. (While at my keyboard, of
    course). And it was PDG, if I do say so myself. <vbg>

    I can't tell you how many times I've done exactly the same thing. Gawd...
    one time I created a monster. I had a bunch of pot roast left over and
    plenty of carrots and potatoes. To make it short, I wound up with a gallon
    of beef stew.

    Fortunately, most stews and soups freeze well. ;-)
    It's very difficult to make small amounts of soup sometimes!
