Today on My Pet Blog, we're pleased to be taking part in the Souper Blog Hop, celebrating the latest release, Pea Soup Disaster, from super (see what I did there?) author Elaine Kaye.
Participants are asked to share a favorite soup recipe, or—if you're like me and you don't cook anything that requires a recipe—just share a favorite soup...even if it comes from a can. Which is good, because pretty much anything I can cook comes from a can.
My father used to make pea soup, this big giant pot of it, whenever he had a ham bone. I never had any. It just looked so...gross. I like peas, I'll eat ham, but pea soup? No way. However, my significant other loves it, so whenever my father made a batch, he would send me home with a big container for him.
Personally, I've always been partial to Campbell's Cream of Chicken soup. We had it as kids, usually mixed with some kind of pasta, and the meal just stuck with me, I guess. Even today, Cream of Chicken soup and elbow macaroni is one of my top go-to comfort foods.
And because I'm a smart ass, here's a picture of the soup in a bowl...
Congratulations, Elaine! Wishing you much success!
Gregory Green loves his mom’s pea soup, but when he eats it at school, all of his friends make fun of how it looks. He doesn’t think it looks like bugs, and it tastes good! Then at recess, his friends run from him, screaming, “He’s a monster!” Gregory doesn’t know why his friends are being mean until he sees his skin is green. The teasing gets worse until an unlikely friend comes to the rescue—his teddy bear, Sammy. Sammy usually only comes to life for Gregory and his family, but Sammy has an important lesson to teach Gregory and his classmates.
