The very recent Soup thread reminds me to proffer an observation/question regarding the eschewing of hot soup by many Anglo?-Americans during the warm months. Admittedly, I suffer soup mania. As home food(regardless of origin) or pabulum(in a good way...meaning easy to digest)...a great broth is one of the more exquisite foodstuffs under the sun. I grew up in Texas and ate soup throughout the seasons as did my family. Only upon moving North did I encounter this soup-eating dichotomy. It occurs to me that in Southeast Asia they routinely eat broth and soups(often as a bland component in a spicier meal), but these preparations do steam. So what's up with the
"I only eat soup in colder weather." Where does this come from?
Curiouser and curiouser.
