    Bowls actually take up a lot of room, though.

    But for good gazpacho the use of space is worth it. Or do the bowls by hand. Just be sure to make the soup.

    I can totally see myself doing that if and when I become a mom.

    Paper bowls…Why would anybody use one you have to wash? But this toon does remind me I have a can of Campbell’s chicken noodle soup in the cupboard….

    Here’s a cold soup that should appeal to a kid.

    2 Tablespoons onion, finely chopped
    2 Teaspoons curry powder, or to taste
    1 Tablespoon flour
    3 1/2 cups chicken stock
    1/4 cup dry sherry
    2 egg yolks, lightly beaten
    1/2 cup cream
    1/2 cup finely diced, tart, unpeeled red-skinned apple

    1.In a large pot, heat the butter. Add the onion and curry powder. Sauté about 5 minutes, or until the onion is softened. Stir in the flour, mixing it well; cook for a few minutes.
    2.Slowly stir in the chicken stock, then the sherry. Bring to a goil, stirring constantly.
    3.Gradually stir some of the hot soup into the egg yolks, then stir the yolks into the soup pot. Reduce the heat to low. Cook, stirring, about 1 minute, or until slightly thickened.
    4.Strain the soup into a bowl; cover and cool slightly. Refrigerate until it is very cold.
    5.Just before serving, stir in the cream and taste for seasoning. Serve the soup in chilled bowls and garnish it with the chopped apple.

    Chicken Stock (same credit) 2 1/2 to 3 quarts (U.S. Quart is 946 mls. for cooking purposes)

    2 roast carcasses (skin, bones, bits of meat)
    Giblets (except livers) of 2 chickens
    Pan juices (only the skimmed natural pan juices – not gravy or sauce)
    1 medium sized onion

    1 leek (with some of the green)
    1 parsnip
    3 sprigs parsley
    1 parsley root, if available
    Sprig of dill
    2 Teaspoons salt

    1.Put all the ingredients in a 5 to 6 quart pot. Add water to within 1/2” of the top of the pot. Cover, leaving the lid slightly askew, and bring to a boil; reduce the heat and simmer about 2 hours, skimming occasionally.
    2.Pour the liquid through a fine strainer and let it cool to room temperature. NOTE: For extra clear stock, line the strainer with cheesecloth that has first been rinsed in cold water.
    3.Refrigerate the cooled stock.
    4.Before using, remove any congealed fat on the top,

    Here’s my recipe:
    1. Grab can of soup, peel off easy-opening lid.
    2. Pour into bowl.
    3. Heat in microwave, enjoy.
    Or if that’s too much work, buy the soups in microwavable bowls. Eat with plasticware; NO dishes to wash later!

    I don’t think it’s what will fit in the dishwasher as what dishes are still left in the cupboard.

    Cold soup doesn’t count as soup at all. Eww.

    Tiger’s Tail sounds delicious and easy. Will have to try it on my kids. Was going to be disappointed if no one posted a soup recipe. Thanks!

    You’ve never had a good beet borscht with a dollop of sour cream then, have you?

    She could have made macaroni salad, tuna salad, cold soup (which there are many to choose from),
    fresh garden salad, or even cold cereal!
