Read the text "Soup for Supper". Sarah talks with Todd about how she loves making soup and the what she does with the extras.
Todd: Okay. So Sarah, I see you eat soup every day at work. Why are you eating soup every day?
Sarah: That’s because I love to cook soup.
Todd: So you make the soup?
Sarah: Yes, it’s very easy to make.
Todd: So you cook it and then you just bring it to work everyday?
Sarah: Yeah. I just make a lot on Monday and then I bring it to work everyday of the week.
Todd: Oh nice. So how do you make the soup? What’s your secret?
Sarah: Well, I like to cook very easy. So I buy meat that’s already cut up, usually, chicken and then some rice, usually brown rice and then I buy some vegetables. So after I bought the ingredients, I chop them up and I put them all together in water until boils and add some seasoning.
Todd: Okay. So you say the water boils, so as soon as the water boils that’s when you put in all the ingredients?
Sarah: Yes, that’s right.
Todd: So you don’t put in the ingredients before the water boils.
Sarah: No. I guess, it’s just easier for the water to be hot because then the vegetables and the meat cook a little faster.
Todd: So how do you give the soup flavoring?
Sarah: I usually add salt and pepper, maybe some garlic. And depending on the type of soup, either maybe some soy sauce or lemon juice.
Todd: Okay. Do you put in the flavoring after you put in the ingredients or before you put in the ingredients?
Sarah: Maybe after but usually, right about all at the same time.
Sarah: So I just put everything in at one time.
Todd: And then after you cook the soup, do you put the soup in the refrigerator? Do you let it sit outside?
Sarah: I usually eat some right then, and I also put it in containers for the week. But I let it sit in the containers out on the counter for a while for it to cool before I put in the refrigerator.
Todd: All right. And so, you don’t put it in the refrigerator until it is cool?
Sarah: Until it’s about room temperature.
Todd: Okay, nice. And then how do you heat it up? Do you heat it up in a pot or do you heat it up in the microwave?
Sarah: In the microwave. It’s the easiest.
Todd: Yeah. Nice. So you make enough for five meals?
Sarah: Maybe, sometimes. If I think I will get tired of eating it during the week then maybe I’ll just make enough for three or four meals. But if it’s some kind that I think is really delicious and I know I want to eat it everyday, then I’ll make a lot.
Todd: Well, if that happens, when you make the soup, you can make it for six or seven and give me a bowl.
Sarah: Okay. I’ll do that next time.
Todd: Oh great. Thanks.
