I mentioned yesterday that we ate the little Spinach and Feta pasties after a bowl of soup for our lunch over the weekend. I guess some folk stop eating soup over the hotter days of Summer preferring instead to live off just salads and cooler sounding meals. But in fact we find that a bowl of tasty homemade soup is very satisfying when you come in from a hot mornings work.
Providing you are stepping into the cool of the house, the soup isn't too hot and your bowl not overly full and you follow it with something like a warmish pasty or a bowl of choppy salad and it's all served with a glass of iced water .... it's one of the tastiest and quickest lunches going.
And of course you can make the soup ahead of time so that you have the weeks portions already stashed in the fridge ready for reheating, so no standing preparing lunch over a hot stove. The pastys or salads can also be pre-prepared and in the fridge ready for grabbing and adding to the lunch table. A couple of minutes for each bowl of soup in the microwave and there you have it .... soup on a hot day :-)
