Finding a full-time job is tough and a little bit soul-sucking. I apologize for my continued lack of tri-weekly updating. I plan to get back into at least bi-weekly posts next week. I’ve also been spending a lot of my time on my second project. Click it. Click it!
About six months ago, my mom picked up and presented me with two packages of “soup mix” she’d found at one of those specialty shops in small historic towns. I was skeptical. It just looked like dried herbs and corn, and the packaging was a little cheesy.
Then one Sunday night I was super lazy and tried one of them. I added a pound of ground beef and some soup stock (as well as a couple of other required ingredients) and like 30 minutes later – Goulash. The brand was Frontier Soups and it was delicious. And simple.
So even though they run at about $6 a pop, I tracked them down at my local Fresh Market and picked up some more. This time I added bay scallops, shrimp and cream to the “Florida Sunshine” Red Pepper and Corn Chowder and we gobbled it down, briefly pondering how excellent the addition of BACON would have been.
And if you think $6 is a lot for a soup mix, think about the fact that it serves 4-6, which lasts me about a solid week when I don’t feel like sharing. Plus if it’s not available in your area you can order directly from the site. Win.
