When you feel like the dickens, you definitely don’t want to cook and you barely want to eat. A scratchy sore throat, achy body, and stuffy nose wants nothing more than some hot chicken noodle soup at 500ºF immediately, if not sooner. Oh, the agony.
I opened the box, dumped it into the pan and while waiting for the heat to kick in I decided to peruse the soup box. Wow! The soup inside the pan and the soup on the box did not look exactly the same colorwise.
Where are they getting all that ‘green’ color in the picture on the box from? No, seriously? I didn’t see it inside the pan at all. Then I figured to be fair, hmmm, maybe it needs to be inside an actual bowl like in the picture before you see it or before it looks that scrumptious.
As you can see, the bowl made no difference whatsoever. Though the soup was good, please don’t deceive me with pretty pictures on a box with unrealistic contents that are nowhere to be found.
(I tell ya, it’s the little things you notice when you have a lot of time on your hands feelin’ like the dickens.)
So, if you have nothing else to do today, inspect all your food packaging in comparison with the actual contents on the inside. That should make for an interesting day.
Take-Away Life Lesson: Things are not always as they seem apparently.
