It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year…


Every March — to celebrate my birthday and for no other reason — the Souplantation restaurant chain stocks its soup bars with my favorite soup, their Creamy Tomato Soup. I am only a modest fan of tomato soup elsewhere. It's theirs I like so much that I will be hiking (literally hiking) to the one nearest to me many times throughout the month for a bowl or two. Or nine. You might like to join me in a bowl (not literally in the bowl or even sharing the same bowl).

In some cities, Souplantation goes by the name of Sweet Tomatoes. You can find if either is near you at this site…and while you're there, sign up for their Club Veg so they'll e-mail you really good discount coupons.  The only thing better than good soup is cheaper good soup.  Anyway, it starts on or around March 1.  Most Souplantations seem to change their offerings on Saturday so it may not be there Friday.  If you go and enjoy it, join me in nagging them to make it a regular.  Tell the manager of the one you visit and also call their Customer Service Line.  Thank you.
