We've all been waiting for this moment. A trail of blood, tears, and broken dreams lies behind us. No, silly, we're not talking about the thrilling finish of The Piglet Tournament of Cookbooks!
We're talking about the other thing happening this week, the biggest eating day of the year (besides Thanksgiving and Meatopia). The thing that, strangely, we're not supposed to refer to by name. So, to keep it all legal, we'll say it with soup.
