Not just any soup. Not frozen home made soup (yeah, I didn't have any). I went with the garden variety Packet kind.
They are pretty idiot proof. The instructions are on the packet and they are clear.
Put pot on stove
Pour powder into pot
|dropped the spoon - fail|
|Magic instrument - whisk|
Add water whilst stirring (I add 1 pint water, half pint milk).
Bring to boil
Turn down the heat and cover
Simmer for 5 mins
no mess no fuss.
I decided to supplement the veg by adding some frozen peas and corn (just a handful of each). The kids didn't notice the addition (yay) and it was summarily scoffed (after the addition of 2 star shaped ice blocks to cool things down, Thanks Ikea).
If I had it, I would have added a bit of left over shredded chicken just to really bulk it up.
As it was, I just buttered some good old Irish bread (you don't know it, but the Irish make the best bread) and Bobs your Aunty.
Or your Uncle.
Or maybe its Murphy....
