The Soup Lady struck paydirt with this 2000 publication as three major areas of interest were satisfied all at once: soup, discount shopping and QVC.
On a leisurely stroll through Tuesday Morning, what do I spy on the shelf but this irresistable item - Soups & Stews by Bob Bowersox , the QVC host who does "In The Kitchen With Bob" on Sunday afternoons. Yes, I know it's just a vehicle to sell Showtime BBQ Rotisseries and Nesco roasters, but he does a little cooking while he domeonstrates the product. Somehow, someone gave him the idea that this qualified him as a real cook, so he has taken to wearing chef clothing - I especially admire that little babushka he has around his neck - and writing a series of cookbooks for the domestically challenged.
But there it was right on the shelf for only $3.00. The cover price is $24.00 and on QVC they sell it for $18.75. Irresistable, even though there's hardly a recipe worth repeating in the entire thing. Well, maybe one, but only because it is described this way:
