Quote for the week: Soup is a lot like a family. Each ingredient enhances the others; each batch has its own characteristics; and it needs time to simmer to reach full flavor. Marge Kennedy




Have fun at the Hop.



BLURB: Gregory Green loves his mom’s pea soup, but when he eats it at school, all of his friends make fun of how it looks. He doesn’t think it looks like bugs, and it tastes good! Then at recess, his friends run from him, screaming, “He’s a monster!” Gregory doesn’t know why his friends are being mean until he sees his skin is green. The teasing gets worse until an unlikely friend comes to the rescue—his teddy bear, Sammy. Sammy usually only comes to life for Gregory and his family, but Sammy has an important lesson to teach Gregory and his classmates.

Add croutons and/or potato chips.
Yummy!

Congratulations to Elaine on an adorable book.

  4. I love that Marge Kennedy quote.

    I don't think I've ever added potato chips to my bowl of soup, but I've heard people do that. I might have to try that some time. :) Thank you so much for participating in the blog hop!

    1. It seems like most everyone likes soup, Lee. I like it because it's easy to fix, especially if I use the canned kind. I'm off to visit more blogs too.

  9. Chicken and vegetables is a good classic soup. I've never tried it with chips on top, but now that I think about it, there's no reason why chips wouldn't taste great on top of a good soup. I'll have to try that.

    1. I like it, L. G. And I like potato chips with most dishes. You never know until you try it. Just eat the chips first so they don't get soggy and have extras on the side.

  11. Soup can make a meal. Add a roll or cornbread, maybe a salad and who needs anything else?

  13. Potato chips sounds tasty. We crumble up crackers so why not chips - or crisps for a Brit like me.
