Soup’s on @ 1102

Last Soup:  Broccoli and Bread Soup

My Rating:  **   2 out of 5 stars

Comments:  I found this soup to be extremely bland.  It was not to my liking.  I would have done better to have made it a broccoli cheddar soup.  The salt from the cheese would have given it some added flavor.  The best part was the bread.  But if a mild soup is to your liking this will do just fine.

Well, with the weather warming up  – Here in Arizona it’s been warmer for a while now – My desire for soup has diminished.  So, I gave this review of our last soup featured, and I will have to turn Wednesday toward a lighter food fare.  As of now I haven’t decided just what. . . Maybe Salads,  maybe low cal . . .  I will have to see what catches my palette.  “Soup’s On” will return in the fall, when I’m looking for warmer tastes and comfort food.
