The year of soup

2021 was the year of the pizza in Jon's kitchen. 2022 is trending towards the year of soup.

As a gamer, my daily cooking strategy has always been soup forward. I don't want to cut into my game time, so putting things in a pot and letting them cook themselves has been pretty common over the decades. There were a few years there where every dinner was either chicken soup or chicken and rice. The last couple years of lockdown made me want to get more food photos, and by extension, cook more fancy stuff for a change. But that's done. Lockdown over. So moving on.

Lately my meal plan has mostly been soup. Lots of variety - chicken soup, cioppino, gumbo, curry soup, pozole, green chili, Irish fish chowder. But if it's the year of soup maybe we need more soup.

How about getting my mushroom soup game perfected? I've never made Italian wedding soup. I love carrot/squash soup, but never made that either. Is beef stew soup? What about beef Bourguignon? New England and Manhattan clam chowders. Maybe work on my hero photo for a fancy ramen soup? (if you think ramen soup is the little packs of dried noodles and MSG, it isn't, I have some places to take you in SD) Minestrone is not an option, as I hate it. Chicken pot pie soup, which has nothing to do with pot pie somehow.

French onion soup is great, but I'd rather get a proper version in some epic bistro. As one does.

Split pea, ham and bean, potato with cheddar and bacon, pozole verde, chicken tortilla soup, shrimp bisque, cheeseburger soup, corn chowder, Moroccan shrimp stew, ribollita (bean and bread soup).

Today I'm feeling like some Algerian chorba frik soup.

So. I present, 2022, the year of soup.
