Reed Moore’s Things To Do
‘Tis the Season for Soup
You could make the argument that any season is soup season. We at The Reader would be the first to make such a claim. However, nothing hits the spot on a cold winter day like a bowl of hot soup. Maybe even a grilled cheese sandwich or a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on the side if it tickles your fancy. So this winter, get a few recipes together (maybe from the latest Omaha Junior League Cookbook or one of the hundreds of cookbooks available through the Omaha Public Library.) Our favorite soups are a classic tomato (bonus points if you mix in a bunch of peanut butter — just trust us on this one) as well as butternut squash and a potato.
