Do you ever add anything to your soups for variety? For the chicken noodle soup, I have added frozen mixed vegetables (which I thaw in the microwave first) and toward the end of heating, I also add some fresh zucchini (peeled & cubed) and cook until zucchini is done. As for the tomato soup, I have added some garnish like cheddar and croutons...etc but when I add anything into the soup, it always ends up tasting like Spaghetti O's.

I love tomato soup, only recently started to make it. After I tasted for the first time basicaly I fell in love with it, unfortunately it was only like 2-3 years ago. Never had it before. The thing I like the best it is so easy to make. !5-20 minutes and it's done. Chicken soup is my all time favorite, but it takes much longer to make.

The rock in the story "Stone Soup" really is nothing more than a catalyst. The villagers were all hoarding their food but starving in the process snce they each had only a small amount of food. The traveler starts with water and a stone. The villagers become curious about his cooking. He tells them he's making stone soup. It's a very good soup but could be made better if he had an onion. So one villager says he has an onion. The story continues like this until a hearty vegetable soup is in the making from everyone contributing their own little bit. There was enough for everyone to eat their fill. The rock really had nothing to do with the soup itself as far as being magical except that it brought everyone together.

My grandmother used to read us that story when we were little. Even as a little kid, I understood and loved the moral: as individuals, they had didn't have enough resources, but when they teamed up to pool their resources, they had plenty. A great lesson in business, families, and life.

Thanks, jabbur!

My favorite way to have tomato soup is with chick peas & a hint of lemon. There was a restaurant names St. Basil's that always made it that way & I just loved it with crusty parmesan bread.
