French onion soup seems to be the choice of people who don't really like soup. And in my experience, women tend to prefer soup more than men do, so men gravitate toward french onion soup more than women do. That's why it's a popular pub food.
Discuss amongst yourselves.
I love soup. I love everything about soup. What's not to love? For starters, making a pot of soup means you can clear all the leftovers from your fridge and freezer. You only need to use one pot. The more spinach, barley, noodles, pulses and carrots you add, the better it is. Throw whatever the hell you want into your soup! It's your soup, make of it what you want.
And a pot of soup simmering on the stove provides you with an iron-clad excuse to not leave the house all day long. "Come to Costco with you? Oh dear, I would love to, but I have a pot of soup on the stove. I can't possibly go anywhere until at least Tuesday."
I could easily eat soup every day, and when I eventually become a crazy cat lady, that's exactly what I will do.
What's your favourite soup?
