In one of the Hunger Games books, Katniss recalls "empty days" when you just feel empty and hungry no matter what you eat.
Even though I don't live in District 12 (I think Indiana is technically in District 6), I still have those days -- days I need something to fill me up and leave me satisfied.
This soup does the trick. It's pretty cheap too and much tastier than simply eating District 12 ration grain drop biscuits! You probably already have all the ingredients on hand.
