(co-worker approaches my desk, forlorn looking)
Tony: Look guys, I have soup!! *holds aloft a can of progresso chicken noodle soup LIGHT*
Me: Eww. That stuff is terrible. It’s nothing but mushy!
Tony: I am gonna put some tapatio in it.
Me: That’s so sad. That is not soup. THIS is soup. *whips out my cell phone and shows him my french onion soup pictures*
I should explain that my phone is my camera. I didn’t transfer these pics for the sheer meanness of making others jealous
Tony: Well I don’t have that. MAKE ME SOUP! *gives me the saddest face I’ve ever seen on a grown man*
Me: *sigh* I guess. Whatever it is has to be better than that!! Something easy, cause I’m not buying more gruyere and doing all that stuff tonight.
Tony: YAY!!!! SOUP!!!!
Now, with the back story out of the way, I can tell you that I am not so much of a sucker that I made a huge batch of soup for my coworker.. I did, however, make a huge batch for myself for dinner/lunch/etc. Tomato Basil. Yum. I used some canned tomatoes and some from my garden as well since I didn’t have enough fresh.. but I finally used some veggies from the garden!
And what would soup be without grilled cheese???
