What is this?
Welcome to the plog (short for souplog.) I’m planning on documenting all of the soup that I make at home or consume elsewhere. Here is where I will post the recipes for the soups that I make, or tell the tale of soup that I had
that was prepared by someone else.
Doesn’t sound too exciting? I didn’t want to break all the news at once – hang onto your hats: I will also be taking camshots of the soup I prepare as it is served in my collection of vintage American dinnerware! As soon as I get a camera. This blog design will compliment my dishes perfectly. As a matter of fact, I may even throw in some facinating details about the pattern of the dishes that are showcased. And maybe a shot of the dishes when they are not in use.
I will also share observations about the great American claasic – Jello and repeat snippets of conversation that I overhear in restaurants. Here’s one to get us started:
I will now entertain you by repeating a fragment of a conversation that I overheard from the next table:
He: mumble mumble mumble those two animals in front of it.
She: Those are lions.
He: The New York Public library?
She: Yes. And do you know – they have names. And their
names are Patience and Fortitude.
He: Which one is Patience?
She: Patience is the one on the left.
He: How did you know that?
She: mumble mumble mumble
Life is so interesting, isn’t it, dears?
