    Alphabet Soup

    A quick soup that the little kids <img src=/S/love.gif border=0 alt=love width=15 height=15> 'cause they can play and eat at the same time <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>. And it's much better than one of those ghastly <img src=/S/burga.gif border=0 alt=burga width=40 height=15>

    </center>


    Ingredients (servers 6)

    <UL><LI>450 ml of boiling water
    <LI>250 grams of Alphabet noodles
    <LI>2 eggs
    <LI>2-3 grams of fresh parsley
    <LI>chicken stock (or 6 chicken stock cubes)
    <LI>1 flat tablespoon of margarin (or butter if you prefer)
    <LI>Pepper and Nutmeg[/list]Method
    <UL><LI>Put butter or margarine in a pot, put on medium heat and grind some fresh pepper into it.
    <LI>While waiting for the pepper to start sizzling, break the two eggs into a dish and whisk thoroughly. Boil the water.
    <LI>Once the pepper sizzles, add the noodles and stir every 10 seconds or so until some letters start getting brown.
    <LI>Add boiling water (supervise the kids during this process!), turn heat to the lowest possible, stir, ensuring nothing sticks to the bottom of the pot.
    <LI>After 2 minutes or so, add the chicken stock (or crumbled stock cubes) and simmer for 5 minutes to 8 minutes.
    <LI>Finely chop the parsley and stir into the eggs. Take soup off heat and stir the egg/parsley mixture into the soup. Sprinkle some fresh ground nutmeg on top and give one more stir.
    <LI>Serve, <img src=/S/munch.gif border=0 alt=munch width=19 height=17> and enjoy. (Do not <img src=/S/scold.gif border=0 alt=scold width=50 height=15> at the kids when they start writing their names, once they found the right letters, at the edge of the plate <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>.)[/list]
    Cheers, Claude.

    Why stop at Alphabet noodles? Why not Algebraic noodles too??

    If they don't exist yet, remember where you heard it first.

    Or make a limited alphabet soup - just use the letters A, C, G and T. See how long it takes before they come up with DNA...

    Chinese noodles - I like that! How about a simplified character set for those on a diet?
