I am all for homemade everything, including chicken soup, so it's been so long since I actually bought canned soup. It surprised me when I opened this can of chicken soup. It smelled like my childhood. Throw in a side of Chef Boyardee ravioli eaten cold straight from the can, and I'm eight years old watching Saturday morning cartoons again. Something else that smells like my childhood - Maurice Sendak! Who remembers Carol King singing in an animated version of this sweet little book, Chicken Soup with Rice?
This book contains a poem for each month that celebrates everyone's favorite soup. In January, it's nice to sip this soup on ice, so nice that you can sip it twice! In December, they decorate their Christmas tree with soup bowls.
With the New Year days away, we at Booktomato hope that you and your family have all good things in 2017. Happy New Year!
