I win

Many years ago at Simplefare, Charlotte was just starting to work on solid food, and I made the mistake of offering her mustard soup.  Why not - it seemed like a great idea at the time, and she'd been very adverturesome with culinary variety.

It went... poorly.

Not only did she not like it, she refused to eat *anything* that came on a spoon for days afterwards.

Yesterday I heated some leftover mustard soup for lunch for Bob and I.  She wanted some, so I let her lick the spoon.  She demanded her own bowl.  When it was gone, she regretted the lack of seconds.  When I reheated the last of it today, she had a big bowl, and sucked it all down.

She's a better man than I
I never got my palate around mustard soup. Not for lack of trying it over and over again to see if my tastes changed, but it just wasn't to my taste.

Mustard soup? Soup made out of the yellow stuff? Er. Or...soup made out of the greens? (I've never seen fresh mustard greens so I don't know how they're used in cooking, but I hope it is the greens. I can't imagine eating a soup made out of the hot dog condiment.)

It's a cream soup. Chicken stock base, lots of cream and eggs, and heavily flavored with mustard - like the hot dog condiment.

It sounds *terrible,* I know - and I loathe mustard. But I love cream of mustard soup. Weird.

Oh, I need that recipe, pretty, pretty please?
