SOUPSONG HAS GONE HARDCOPY!
Starving Artist Soup
This soup was created by Ronnie Reed in Worthington, Ohio, and his story is as good as his recipe--an inspiration to lovers everywhere. If you're trying to survive a difficult time...aren't used to cooking...wouldn't mind losing a little weight...are yearning to be with the one you love--if all of these things, I think you'll be interested in what Ronnie has to say about soup and love.
I'm 31 years of age and work for a international business machine company. My wife and I have been married together for 12 years. I have grown to love and appreciate soups in general lately. During my marriage separation, I ate soups for lunch and dinner for, well let's just say, A LONG TIME! I went from 220 down to 190 in a matter of months. I still eat soups at least twice a week. In a nutshell, it's good for you and good for the soul. SOUPS RULE!!
Here's my story and recipe......
This soup was invented during a time when my wife and I were separated for a few months. In an attempt to lose weight, cut back on costs, but not die from starvation, I had to learn how to cook since man cannot live off of beer and peanut butter crackers alone. To me, if it's worth looking at, it's worth eating. So in attempt to be as creative as I could without burning down the kitchen, I made 'The Starving Artist Soup'. It's easy, quick, and it looks good too. What you will need are...
Directions: Brown the hamburger in a pot, drain the grease (optional, depends on how hungry you are). Drop the two cans on the hamburger, add two cans of water. Let it cook for 2 minutes on HIGH! Bring boil down to simmer.
It makes about four bowls so you can eat 2 that night and have left overs the next night for dinner. It does taste better the second day, not sure why?
I lived on this stuff for 4 months and lost 20 pounds, paid my expenses, and survived. My wife, after discovering that I did not die without her, came back. :) That's my story and recipe. Thanks for reading it.
