Sometimes, it's the memories of simple pleasures that are most enduring. Think back to the bright winters of childhood, of school-free 'snow days' spent playing outdoors until your nose was red and your fingers were numb and you were happy to be called in for lunch. Do you remember how good it felt to wrap your hands around a warming bowl or mug of fragrant soup just before you took your first bite of a toasty sandwich?
It's a simple pleasure, true, but few meals are as richly soul-satisfying and restorative as the soup and sandwich combination. If you're feeling a little blue, or a bit under the weather, or the stresses of everyday life have got you frazzled, have yourself a nice bowl of soup and a tasty 'sammie' and savor the calming warmth of an old favorite meal.
