Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
-- Macbeth, Act 5, Scene 5
There was a google image that would have gone with this post nicely but a hot tub full of naked men somehow did not seem appropriate for a family type blog:)
Man-soup does not mean a soup made of men. What this is about is a soup that men will like. As a matter of fact, it was a man's idea. Ron suggested we try this and it worked very nicely.
I made our regular potato soup and usually at the end I add a little flour in a small can of evaporated milk and stir that in. Ron suggested that I add Morrison's Country Style Peppered Gravy Mix to the evaporated milk and stir that in. Talk about a hearty, thick soup with a delicious flavor.
(It really isn't just a man's soup but what woman wants to admit that she ate a big bowl of potatoes and gravy which is basically what we have here.)
