Day 6: No Soup For You?
Here is a recap so far of the 12 Days of My Mug and Me:
Day 1: Favorite Coffee Shop Drink
Day 2: Anyone Care for a Cuppa Tea?
Day 3: Eggnog Shake and a Smile
Day 4: Unleaded Cocktails Anyone?
Day 5: Peppermint Hot Chocolate
It is a bitter and chilly morning in Minnesota and a perfect day to have soup for lunch. Can anyone guess where today’s article title comes from? Keep reading and if you can’t remember I will give you a clue later on in the article. Today’s Travel Mug use is about keeping hot things hot and utilizing my mug for something other than a beverage.
What’s in the Mug?
Today’s mug contains a wonderful homemade soup that could warm anyone up on a cold winter’s day. The travel mug is able to keep the soup nice and hot because of the metal thermal insert but that means you need to warm up the soup in a separate container and then pour your soup into your mug to keep it nice and hot! (The travel mug is not meant for heating in the microwave, do not place the travel mug in the microwave.)
Did you know?
· Over 10 billion bowls of soup are consumed each year in America
· Women are twice as likely to eat soup for lunch then men
· Frank Sinatra always asked for chicken and rice soup to be available to him in his dressing rooms before he went on stage
Hint: The title for today’s article came from a famous TV episode that first aired on November 2, 1995. Can you guess which TV show it is from?
Great Gift Idea
Create a soup gift package for your favorite soup connoisseur. An RU Motivated Travel Mug, your favorite homemade soup recipe, ingredients to make the soup, and a fabulous container to place the finished soup in. Even better, make the soup yourself and provide that as part of your gift and be sure to include the recipe!
I hope you have enjoyed this week of My Mug and Me. The series will pick up again on Monday, December 14, 2009 with Day 7.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend and for those under the cold winter spell, stay warm!
