ISO Ideas

I've been teasing my grandkids almost since birth that they would be getting dirty-sock-soup for dinner, or lunch, or breakfast, whenever the opportunity was right. They respond as little children do, with over-dramatized exclamations, and wrinkled noses, all very cute, and fun, and they know I'm just teasing. I want to one day sever them a soup recipe called dirty-sock-soup, of course with wholesome and delicious ingredients, not dirty socks. Right now, I can't even think of how to create such a soup. Any ideas?

If so, post them on this thread. Maybe they'll get a surprise while visiting old grandpa for Thanksgiving.

Seeeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North

I would steal the stone soup story and swap out the stone for a sock.

The story could be about a hobo, Paul Bunyan, Santa Claus even Grandpa!

Why don't you put a real sock in it? Buy a new pair of cotton socks, wash one out really well a few times, and toss it in the soup just before you serve it.

I like Roch's idea! Of course it would be a simple veggie and pasta soup. Maybe using baby socks, so everyone gets their own sock.

Oh Chief,
You must go with the sock idea, that's brilliant! A tasty 'cowboy' soup perhaps (baked beans and tomatoes base) and some ready cooked sausages secreted in the sock which can then be pulled out and the 'sock' discarded!
Just a thought

I'd go with a sopa ropa vieja or sopa de carne ripiada recipe, or perhaps egg drop soup, or a combination of them. That would give you the effect of having shredded clothing, in this case sweat socks, in the soup.
