Grandma is 90 now. She does not cook anymore. But she loves to watch me. She'll mix the matzoh balls if I encourage her. She'll offer advice if I insist, but with her fingers crossed. Because she honestly thinks I do it better than she does. She is wrong.
Whether you're on a soup diet as part of your New Year's resolution to eat more healthfully or you're just committed to, er, liquid lunches for their warmth value, you'll need some variety in your bowls of soup.
