Healthy soups taste like shoe leather. Bad.
I threw one soup away yesterday after heating it stunk the house up the house so bad everyone complained! I took one sip and declared it inedible.
So today, I figured what could go wrong with Carrot Ginger soup?? I love the combination. Soup seemed a good idea for lunch today but try as I might try enjoy it, it was flavorless.
I added some salt. That didn’t help. I added some pepper. Nope. It was blah.
I bought the soups at a highly regarded Mount Kisco mom and pop establishment where tons of healthy looking people shop so I assumed their soups would be divine. It was my first time in the store. The ingredient on the soups look normal and edible but so far, two out four have found their way to the trash bin.
I’m guessing none of the soups was prepared with any seasoning to give them depth of flavor. When I make soups I start by making a base of mirepoix and season each layer as I add ingredients. These soups weren’t as bad as dishwater but not much better. Bummer.
Gorgeous day finally although still a little brisk.
Five minutes into doing the Weekend WSJ crossword puzzle and already I’m in trouble with what I’m sure is an error at 39A. I know 6A is Tsar but it could be Czar and I can’t get 6D or 7D yet. Haven’t gotten any long one to understand the theme but by days end, I should have this done. I’m pretty good at crosswords.
2:40pm. Finished. 39A was wrong. So was my 107D. Otherwise, A+.
