    Introducing Chipotle Butternut Squash Soup. If you’re lucky, you’ll get it for dinner. If not…

    “NO SOUP FOR YOU!” Do you recognize that quote? If you’ve ever watched “Seinfeld,”  the hilarious sitcom about basically nothing, you’ll be familiar with the classic episode entitled “The Soup Nazi.” It’s one of my favorites. The “Soup Nazi” basically discriminates against people he doesn’t like, for whatever reason, as he serves (or refuses to serve) them at his soup counter. It’s a classic! I’ve been watching Seinfeld reruns recently on Netflix as I fold and iron laundry. I had forgotten how funny that show is!

    Are you a soup person? I LOVE soup…basically, any kind of soup. There’s nothing quite like a steamy bowl of chowder or French onion to warm up cold toes and fingers.  My son, Thomas, however, isn’t much of a soup fan. I think it just doesn’t fill him up enough. Unless it’s a huge bowl of meaty chili, he would rather eat a steak or chicken breast.

    Maybe that’s a thing with guys. Is soup more of a female kind of food? Now that I think about it, most guys don’t usually order soup at restaurants. “You get soup or salad with that.” They usually get the salad. Maybe we should take a survey of soup eaters to find out the ratio of male to female soup eaters at restaurants.
