Learning Soup

I think that learning happens better with good soup in the stomach. Cold. Hot. It doesn’t matter! Campbell’s was right:  Soup is good food.

Beautiful soup, so rich and green
Waiting in a hot tureen!
Who for such dainties would not stoop?
Soup of the evening, beautiful soup!
Beautiful soup! Who cares for fish
Game, or any other dish?
Who would not give all else for two
Pennyworth of beautiful soup?

– Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

Here is a new recipe for my ultimate cold-weather learning soup:  French Onion Soup.  This one is a vegetarian version — made with miso (good good food!).

Learning Soup

I know, I know — it’s early May and some of us can see summer from here.  But there is not much of a better dinner or lunch (or breakfast!) on a mild-May day than soup.

Try it! Next time you need to write a paper or read that challenging book for class, eat some soup first. Your brain will thank you, as will your stomach.
