Though I am a bringer when it comes to lunch, I often venture out for soup. When the Harris-Teeter opened this spring, I thought, hey, here’s a great new source. My initial visits scored exciting new formulations, such as chicken tortilla soup and chicken noodle—both of which were pretty good and reasonably priced.

Weeks later, I am realizing that the H-T soup offerings have a limited bandwidth—it’s pretty much the same program each time—chicken tortilla, chicken noodle, chili, and perhaps some terribly fat-loaded chicken dumpling concoction. I would credit the pot roast soup with diversifying the menu, but that stuff is terrible.

Looks like I’m headed back to So’s Your Mom or the can!
