Soup and Stuff
Delicious Ham and Potato Soup
(I like this site because it has reviews. Over 5,000 cooks gave this a perfect rating. So did I!)
I serve soup with bread and cheese. My father-in-law got me started doing that a long time ago and it just seems right.
I made that soup a couple weeks ago, but it would be perfect for today. It is a cloudy and raw day, with a brisk wind and temps in the 50's. I wish I had a big pot of this on the stove because I have no clue what to make for tonite's dinner and it's 4:13.
If you do a google for "what's for dinner", it turns out there are all sorts of enterprising folks who have started businesses in the business of your dinner. You can pay them for the menus and the shopping lists. They don't, however; do the actual hard part of loading up and unloading. Sometimes, on days like today, even getting to the store seems like an achievement!
After working all day, the last thing I want to do is fight the fight at the grocery store! I do the shopping early on Sunday mornings, but by the time I fill the cart with toilet paper, paper towels, milk, juice, and the 10 boxes of cereal, it's pert near full and I have room for some fruit and chips.
Grocery shopping has to be one of the worst chores. That, and vacuuming!!
