I must confess, I’m not of a soup eater.
I think it stems to how I used to eat it as a child. I’d butter about 8 slices of white bread, eschew the spoon and just start dipping. I think that the comedian Seann Walsh says it best (skip to about 2:19):
Before I go ahead and tell you how to enjoy what’s left of your delicious Christmas Dinner this year, understand that I’m in no way talking about the main event. Whether that be turkey, duck, beef or a nut loaf.
You and I both know that the centrepiece of your festival feast will have been picked clean by now. Used in sandwiches, wraps and midnight excursions to the fridge as you nibble “just a smidge” while deciding what you actually want to eat.
The turkey is gone, you’re just going to have to face facts, I’m afraid.
