"What is this?" my wife demanded, "Animal sphincter soup?"
I had purchased a container of soup stock from the Asian supermarket. The foreign lettering beguiled me in the lunch aisle, that and the low sodium.
"I think they are mushroom tops," I assured her. I don't remember seeing mushrooms on the list of ingredients. The big flaps of skin-like material slithering at the bottom of the bowl didn't make it look any more appealing.
Even so, eyes shut it did taste pretty good.
