And don't you just love how the McDonald's burgers look on TV but when you buy one it's 1/2 that size.
What you see on the label and on TV and what you get are two different things and in order to cut costs and make more $$$ PROFIT $$$ Everything keeps
getting smaller and smaller and suckier in quality.
May your next MacDonald order come with a extra free fries or Coke! or something free fall in your lap.
I know how you feel.
That's why - go to Chef John's Food Wishes (Google it) and learn how to make your own soup.
Soup is one of the easiest and most fun things to make.

Now, if you like split ham and pea soup boy this is super easy and delicious.
Chicken soup.................ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh with wild rice, yum.
Now you always start out with the holy trinity of soup - carrots, celery and onions - saute them lightly in unsalted real butter (Land O Lakes)
put it in a crock pot (big one) add a big box of low sodium chicken broth and chicken and wild rice or potatoes cut up into small cubes.
After a few hours you will have super duper chunky as you want soup...........hell add some peas, cheese, whatever left overs you have - and YOU are
in charge of how chunky your soup is.
Get a crock pot (big one) and get crocking!
My chicken soup was the last thing my beloved Mother In Law requested before she died of breast cancer - the last real meal she had before she could
only eat a little cantaloupe or water melon.
She said my soup was the best.
Don't forget to add a little pepper, garlic powder, basil, a bay leaf.
You make a big batch and freeze it in tupperware containers according to the size you need. You will have soup for a week......................GOOD
SOUP YOU KNOW WHAT'S IN IT.
