Once you come up with your explanation and a TNT recipe you could package it and sell it at a church bazaar or other fundraisers.

A pair of inexpensive socks in a cellophane bag with the printed instructions included.

I'm thinking that the stocking cookie cutter would be great for making some large garlic croutons from day old bread!

Literally "put your foot in it"!

Along with Aunt Bea's thought, I was thinking sock-shaped toasts/croutons, cut out with the sock cookie cutters or freehand, with melted cheese, floated in the soup just before serving.

Something with ramen, perhaps? The children could unravel old socks to make the noodles. It would be up to you to do the bait & switch of sock threads to ramen.

If you do actually put a sock in the soup, make sure that you are only wearing one sock when they come over, and be sure to show them that, after you fish the other sock from the soup :)

I'm thinking that I'm gonna have to by some pure cotton socks. I will do this, and the soup is going to be great.

Every idea is great. Now I just have to choose from the wonderful ideas.

Sprot called last night and said "Dad, can you make crispy french fries?" I answered in the affirmative. She then asked me about the moose meat that I have sitting in my freezer, and if we could use a little to make some poutine. I said that we could.

Her idea is to make a meal that is distinctly from the Great White North, using ingredients from the same. I think it's a great idea.

I was thinking of the stone soup idea the min I started reading
Like the pasta Idea with a stocking cookie cutter shape or make a sock out of cheese cloth.
being a dirty sock soup I think I would make a beef broth to look like dirty water

Cheese cloth! That's brilliant. Thank you, thank you. Now I just have to figure out how to shape it like a sock, and maybe strain some spinach thought it to help with the color. A little fond floating around from pan drippings might be a nice touch as well.

It shouldn't be difficult to make a sock out of cheese cloth and then get it stained and "dirty" by rubbing it into foodstuff. Then you can have the kids put the socks in the soup. You could get one dirty with soy sauce or worchestershire sauce. Another could be dirtied with something tomato based or fresh herbs that you've sent through the blender (grass stains!). Or they could be dirtied with juiced carrots or celery or other veggies. Then the socks will infuse the soup with flavor (which you always talk about also). You could even have the kids dirty the socks in their chosen ingredients.
