WFMW: Hot Soup?

Now that the weather is getting cooler (in some parts of the country, anyway) I've started to serve bowls of soup for lunch and light dinners. My boys love a quick bowl of soup. In fact, they think it is a great treat to be able to pick the flavor of soup we select from the Campbell's soup rack at the grocery store. Shrek... Cars... Goldfish... Dora...

Of course, the hard part of serving soup to the under-7 crowd is the whole its-too-hot thing. Blowing on the soup really doesn't alter the temperature much and for some reason my four year old hates an ice cube floating in his soup almost as much as he dislikes a blistered lip.
One day, as I was reaching into the freezer for an ice cube to melt in his soup before he noticed, I had a moment of sheer mommy brilliance. Frozen veggies! Instead of grabbing an ice cube I grabbed a small handful of peas and carrots. I didn't add enough peas an carrots to turn the soup into vegetable soup, of course, but just enough to cool it down a bit. And what mommy doesn't like the I'm-sneaking-in-a-few-more-veggies moment?
For more great (and maybe even tasty) Works for Me Wednesday tips visit Shannon at Rocks in My Dryer.

What a GREAT idea!! I'm always trying to increase the veggie consumption here. :)

I posted most of the recipes on my recipe blog: alainarecipes. blogspot .com
Enjoy!

Great idea! I've used the ice cube but this is even better. My kids love green peas or mixed veggies so I can use those.

Only from the brain of a mom! I am going to use this little trick tonight when I serve the big pot of soup I made in honor of our first real cold weather down here in Houston!

Интим знакомства без СМС и всякой ерунды... http://www.pi7.ru Найди и ты себе партнёра. Есть [url=http://pi7.ru/menuid-44]Партрерская программа[/url]
И небольшой анекдот для размышления.
Приходит мужик в публичный дом, снимает себе девку и занимается с ней сексом. Тут откуда ни возьмись вламываются менты с облавой. Всех построили в коридоре и начали дознания:
- Ты кто? Проститутка?
- Нет, что вы! Я массажист!
- А ты?
- А я делаю педикюр!
Мужик не выдерживает и говорит:
- Не, вы только посмотрите на них! Сейчас окажется, что проститутка тут - я! ! !
