I was always amused when eating out with Jed when we were first dating and first married because he always ordered soup with his meal, rather than salad. This was so foreign to me. Everyone else I had ever eaten out with always ordered salad, like me. Not Jed. It's not that I'm not a soup person, I love soup. I guess I just think of soup as a meal with salad and bread, not an appetizer before a big meal.
Now that the temperature is dropping and the leaves have changed color, I can start pulling out all my favorite soup recipes. And after finishing Julie Powell's Julie and Julia, where she starts out making Julia Child's Potage Parmentier, which to me means, fancy potato soup, I'm definitely craving a creamy potato soup. Except for one problem, my kids don't like soup. What can I do to make them like soup?
