September Soup

With the fall season just around the corner, here are some quotes about one of our favorite autumn (and year round) foods.

Proverbs

“To make a good soup, the pot must only simmer or ‘smile’ ” (France)

“A good soup attracts seats” (Ghana)

“Cheap meat never makes good soup” (Azerbaijan)

“Ye who buy cheap meat will regret when you taste its broth” (Syria)

“Too many peas spoil the soup” (United States)

“He who stirs the soup pot eats first” (United States)

“A rat’s droppings can spoil a whole cauldron of soup” (China)

“The disobedient chicken obeys in a pot of soup” (Benin)

“Better no spoon than no soup” (Germany)

“One who has been burned by soup begins to blow on the yogurt” (Saudi Arabia)

Too Much Salt?

From the “Yes this really happened department”… (see article)

I have done countless evaluations on rising high school student-athletes but have never questioned their cooking skills?!?

“Puts too much salt in their mashed potatoes,” and “The lamb is overcoooked” are not terms that I’ve ever used with in regards to evaluating a prospect’s talent.

What’s next, criticizing prospects’ choice in Netflix selections or if they use fabric softener when doing their laundry?
