Most of us know the tale of the strangers that tricked a town into feeding them. Everyone contributed a little bit to the soup and it turned out delicious and filling.
Sixteen years ago, the Good Guy and I attended a church family camp-out. Dinner was “Stone Soup.” Every family was asked to bring one or two cans of soup – any kind. We dumped them all in an ENORMOUS pot and heated it up. The result was a wonderful and unique soup. I was told it was a tradition to serve this every year at the camp-out and that no matter what kind of soups people brought, it always turned out well.
Nowadays, I make this on a MUCH smaller scale for my family. I choose 5 cans of soup; usually one cream, one with beef, one with chicken, and whatever else catches my fancy. Dump them all in a pot and warm up. It’s very economical and a real lifesaver on busy nights. Serve it up with some sort of bread product and Voila! a hearty, cheap, easy, yummy meal. It works for me!
