BTW, I just noticed that we now have a new official forum for FOOD! Hmmm... Interesting...
But anyways, I just wanted to ask you guys if you have any input on "Italian Wedding Soup."
I wanted to make it the other day and I looked at about six different cookbooks and could not find the recipe. After I looked online, I found some clues as to why the recipe may not be in cookbooks.
Apparently, the soup is strictly a NORTHEASTERN THING.
I told my husband what I was making and he said he'd never heard of the soup.. But I was like, "Wait a minute! You've never heard of Italian wedding soup!" They have it everywhere!"
The Wikipedia entry for it reiterates that it is a "staple" food and is included on the menus of many restaurants, albeit only in the Northeast.
So, what do you guys think?
Also, I swear I have also heard of "Mexican Wedding Soup"... Or is it "Mexican Wedding balls?"
What's with all the wedding stuff?
Oh, and my recipe ended up not following the original ingredients for Italian wedding soup...
So we called it "Sicilian Annulment Soup."
