Also, the day I pay $7.25 for soup with a plastic spoon is the day I'm in New York getting ripped off.

I take it you've never driven down 33 to The Refectory or to M at the Miranova for dinner. Granted no plastic spoons at those places, but then they don't have barbeque, either.

    Well, a lot of these "soup" threads are all messed up because a lot of posts were deleted, and then more had to be deleted because they were responses to now gone posts. All the threads have been unlocked.
     
    As someone pointed out many of the deleted posts were the work of what would seem to be a lonely IT guy who, based on his usenet posting history, seems to take delight in bothering people instead of working on the "mission critical programming for a large healthcare company" that he claims is his real purpose in life.
     
    I am sure he'll be back again as he said he would be and we'll have to go through the same thing all over again.

          I'm always happy to see Tom's soups! They inspire me to try them or at least a variation.

            Chicken Bruschetta Soup
            The jar of the Bruschetta they sell at Costco, I use 3
            an onion thinly sliced then chopped, I use 3
            A 49 oz can of Chicken broth, I use 6
            Some additional chicken granuels, for the salt
            oregano, a few pinches
            Thyme
            Boneless skinless ckicken breasts cooked on the Flat Top, cut up, I used 10 lbs.
            Simmer, adjust seasonings if needed, you shouldn't need.
            Oh, a little Parmesean, not too much, the Bruschetta is seriously tasty
            This is seriously good soup

            That sounds like a great recipe, and I want to make it soon.     I just need a little clarification on the amount and type of a couple ingredients.  
             
            1.  How much thyme should I use?
             
            2.  By chicken granules, do you mean chicken bullion cubes?  If so, how many should I use?  (I realize it can be varied for taste, but I'm looking for a starting point.  I have no idea if the starting point is 2 cubes or 20.)
             
            3.  For the Parmesean, do you just top the bowl of soup with it when it is served, or do you mix it into the whole batch of soup?  If you mix it in, how much do you use? 
             
            I'm such a math-brained geek, I tend to like numbers, at least as starting points.  :)
             
            Much thanks!  :)

              Glenn, as I make very large batches and have never measured anything, it's a tough call thyme wise. for a family batch, probably a teaspoon to start then adjust as necessary
              I should have said granulated chicken, and you definitely want to be careful here as I use it in lieu of salt, so again a little at a time, if you over salt a soup, peel a potato cut it in quarters and let it simmer for an hour, the potato will pick up the salt, then toss the tater.
              I mix the parmesean in while cooking, again parmesean is not to be the hi light, just a compliment, so a half cup for you to start, then adjust to your taste.
              Hope this helps, let us know how it turned out!

                Thanks Tom -
                 
                I'm basically taking your recipe, and making 1/3 of it.  I think I've only made soup once before in my life, so I'm not familiar with the terms.    What is granulated chicken?   Is it basically crushed chicken bullion cubes?
                 
                Much thanks!

                    Okay great.  I went forward under that assumption tonight and used the powdered "chicken instant bullion and seasoning".  It sure didn't need much, as the chicken broth already added plenty of salt.  I probably added a half teaspoon of the powedered bullion stuff at the end. 
                     
                    Here is our impression of it.   Janet and I really liked it!   I added a bit more parmesean than you recommended (we love parm).   We'd say the only negative was that after the bruschetta simmered in the broth, it got very soft  The nice chunks of tomato all but disappeared, and just combined as part of the broth, losing it's distinct texture.  We used the "Hannah" brand of bruschetta from Costco, which seemed to be the only one that they carry.   It tasted great straight out of the container, and still had nice texture.  I think that next time, I will wait to add the bruschetta until the very end, so it stays more firm and intact.   
                     
                    Overall, it was a great tasting soup!  We never had anything like it before.  We'll be reheating it tomorrow for another serving.  I'll probably get more bruchetta and add more, as I tend to like lots of solids in soup,  anyway. 
                      
                    Tom, Thanks so much for creating this soup, and thanks again for the explanations!

                        New York City has the Soup Nazi, we have Tom the Soup Nutsy. I see a lot of comments on the plastic spoon while eating soup. I have had some of the best clam chowders eating with a plastic spoon. I had a $26 Lobster roll a few weeks ago with a plastic fork. I would drink Chewingthefats soup out of the bowl if it was good, this site is about the food, not how pretty the spoons and plates are............Tom has a successful restaurant, is a great member of this site, we need more people like him....pnwc

                          I've stashed a real spoon in my glovebox just in case I can ever get lleechef to agree to head for Emmitsburg. So far she's refused for fear I'll run into a mad, bacon-loving restauranteur with plastic spoons stuck in his ears.

                            i have to agree, Mr. Hoffman.I just cant eat soup with a plastic spoon. I WILL order soup-but always bring it home to eat in a bowl, and with a regular spoon.

                                My complaint with plastic spoons is they don't hold enough soup! Or anything else!
                                And the tines on plastic forks always break!

                                    "Parmesean" is the way some of the posters on this site misspell  "Parmesan" cheese, also known as Parmigiano cheese.  It's usually an American version of Italian Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, but it can't be called that because it doesn't comply with Italian labeling laws.  
                                     
                                     http://cheese.about.com/od/cheesebasics/f/parm_parmigiano.htm
                                     
                                    At least I think that's what it is, unless there's some brand name out there for pseudo-Parmesan cheese that's called "Parmesean."

                                              You got to be more specific.  I try to see each post but that gets really hard.

                                                Paul....  Here it is.  On some of their other posts they've named specific products:

                                                Everyone missed it except for the person who reported it.
