As a youth I always loved my Campbell's Tomato soup (made with milk not water) and a grilled cheese sandwich. But now I'm a huge fan of Hearty Italian Style Wedding Soup (Progresso, if I want to sodium splurge or Campbell's chunky if I'm being a bit more health conscious). A ham and swiss sandwich is a great add on.
Eating out, Panera's french onion soup and a grilled cheese sando is strong. My favorite Greensboro restaurant Southern Lights closed down and boy did they have a a gifted "soupier" (sp).
ps Nan - I hope this will lighten the mood. Forgot to hit OT, sorry.
Nothing better than a homemade bowl of chicken and andouille sausage or shrimp gumbo. Almost as satisfying to make as eat. In a pinch, this will do:Soup-a-holic here. Most lunches. Back when we could eat out, as an appetizer. Still from out, occasionally.
- I love home made Split Pea soup; absent that, I have been into "Amy's" and Progresso as a 2nd. Many canned versions I don't like, those are tasty.
- Yes on Nan and Chicken Corn Chowder; I like creamy soups in general, Campbells Chunky does a Creamy Chicken Noodle as well. The regular Campbells cream soups are for cooking, IMHO.
- I don't typically like "thin" broth soups but have taken a liking to a particular Ramen bowl (Maruchan). One of the few soups I NEVER eat - Egg Drop.
- and finally, yes, I like New England Clam Chowder, but haven't found any brand I really, really like. I also do Manhattan, which we buy on-line (Campbells Chunky) as it is the only one my wife cares for. I don't do any other shellfish / bisques because I don't care for much shellfish other than Clam (and crabcakes).
Haha. I think Nan thought you were saying that she (Nan) skipped over the best part by only typing yada yada yada and not more of the dialogue.That is literally what Jerry says to Elaine. I was implying nothing, Geez!
Could well be and if that is the case I beg her pardon. It was an iconic scene from a series chock full of memorable lines. Elaine Benes forever! And Go Huskies.Haha. I think Nan thought you were saying that she (Nan) skipped over the best part by only typing yada yada yada and not more of the dialogue.
What we have here is a unique case of multi-dimensional yada yada yada ... sort of like when you see yourself on a monitor that’s sitting next to you, or Russian nesting dolls.
So many references:'Is corn chowder a New England thing?'
my instinct was to say 'invented here,' but i had to confirm.
'In the United States, recipes for corn chowder date back to at least 1884, at which time a corn chowder recipe was published in the Boston Cook Book, authored by Mary Lincoln of the Boston Cooking School.
Have you stumbled upon the origin of the term "chowderhead" ?So many references:
Where did corn chowder originate?
The word chowder is a corruption of the French chaudière (“cauldron”), and chowder may have originated among Breton fishermen who brought the custom to Newfoundland, whence it spread to Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and New England.
Who invented corn soup?
National Geographic asserts that cultivation of corn soup most likely started in some parts of Mexico approximately 10,000 years ago
Where did chicken corn soup originated?
Settlers from fishing villages in Europe that immigrated "across the pond" brought this tradition with them and it has carried on since. The corn comes from the Native Americans that grew corn and made corn soup.
Chowder was not utterly unfamiliar in England at the time, as in Sir Launcelot Greaves (1762) Tobias Smollett has one character state, "My head sings and simmers like a pot of chowder"
