Fried Soup

I went to Point Blank Brewing Thursday, as I generally do on Thursday, and got their Loaded Fries. These are so not vegan! Not even vegetarian! They’re fries, okay, a big load of ’em, laden with crumpled bacon, diced green onions, and beer cheese. I asked for cheddar instead of beer cheese, but that didn’t happen. But that’s okay. If I had objected, they would have brought me my preference with an apology and a smile, but I like beer cheese okay, I just had a fancy for something different.

ANYWAY, I could only eat half my order. Maybe it was the Left Hand Brewing Company’s Wake Up Dead Imperial Stout I had with it, or maybe it was the soft pretzel the size of a hubcap I had as an appetizer.

At any rate, I brought half of it home. The next day, it looked pretty ratty, all congealed and all, so I chopped it up.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character chops something up. Or someone.

      It comes of being raised by people who came through The Great Depression: waste not, want not.

    What a great idea to turn leftover french fries into soup. I like the name of that beer!

      It tastes AMAZING! The beer, I mean. The soup was excellent, too, but the beer was AMAZING. šŸ™‚

    I never would have thought of using day old french fries in a potato soup. With the beer cheese and the bacon and scallions…oh my. Heart attack city but heavenly.

      I used whole milk, too, because I had it left over from something else. It was definitely a splurge soup. lol
