This morning I got an email from an old friend and devoted reader of Chewing the Fat. He lives in Weehawken, NJ, which is one of the areas hard hit by Hurricane Sandy. He wrote: “I find myself cooking from my dried and canned/jarred goods tonight, over my stove burner. Would you consider doing a post about how to mix the stuff you have after your fridge and freezer are out of order? I'm sure lots of folks have tons of stuff that doesn't need to be refrigerated, but how to mix it all up? Just a thought.” And a terrific one at that! So here’s what I hope will help all those struggling with power failures and cold and food that’s got to be used in a hurry if it can be used at all. Here’s my suggestion: Make Soup!
