@PocketBrain@unksol I make a bean “soup” and after it’s all cooked, I add rice that sucks up whatever water is left and makes it thick. At this point, it’s probably not qualified to still call it a soup because there’s hardly any liquid left. I sprinkle cheese and eat it with a fork.
@shahnm Agree on 1. : If you add chicken to your cereal and milk, it is also pie.
Disagree on 2.: As per Wiki a pie is defined by its crust. If the cereal in the milk is heavy it forms a bottom crust and creates a filled pie. If it is light and floats on top, it is a top-crust pie with the fruit, nuts, (or chicken) below it.
@rockblossom With respect, please refrain from citing fly-by-night scam propaganda operators such as Wiki as references. It is well established that the authority on these matters is the “Cube Rule of Food” picture.
@Limewater No. If you accidentally drop the top-crust pie before it goes into the oven, scoop it all up with the crust bits on top and randomly blended into the filling, then bake it, it is a cobbler. A cobbler is a pie, but not usually a soup unless you use too much liquid in the filling.
Unless you used an actual cobbler in the pie filling, then it is a meat pie. Or maybe a cobbler cobbler if it has a broken crust.
A whole roast chicken supplies two dinners and two or more lunches. First a chicken and rice dinner and chicken sandwiches for lunch. Boil the carcass and any left over meat for Kitchen Sink soup for a second dinner and lunch(es). Yes!
i don’t really eat soup to begin with unless i’m ill, so, yes maybe in spring if i got sick. (it’s still in the 30s at night here anyway.) not in the summer, the weather is too hot & sticky even with the a/c. and cold soup isn’t for me.
only exception? clam chowder. (new england style please.) chowder n’ clam cakes are meant to be eaten by the ocean and it’s not as pleasant in the winter. (and some places are seasonal and thus closed then anyway.) idk why i’ll eat that but no other soups, and i don’t see a big difference between soup and other hot foods, but go figure, that’s just how it is for me. years of experience i guess
@jerk_nugget I’ll eat clam chowder all year long period, but that’s cuz I’m in New England (at least I guess that’s why). Also, there is no other type of clam chowder. Otherwise, it should just be called clam soup.
@jerk_nugget@zinimusprime Took me moving out of the midwest and New England for me to have that unpleasant surprise of buying clam chowder that isn’t “real” clam chowder. I learned to look at the picture on the can from there on out, not just the words.
Spice and heat makes you sweat and sweat cools you down. Think pho in Vietnam, chai in Pakistan or Menudo in Mexico. For that matter… think about all the climates that make GOOD chili; Texas, New Mexico, Old Mexico.
