I had a totally different recipe planned for you today.

On the menu was a Tuscan flavoured soup with white beans and chicken, but all of a sudden on a chilly day I was overcome with a desire for Tomato Macaroni Soup.

I don’t know why, really. All I know is that it brings back memories of high school.

I liked high school. I was lucky to have some really great friends, was pretty good in my classes and had coaches who, for some reason, allowed me to pretend to play sports along with those friends.

I’ll admit, I’ve never been much of an athlete. I wanted to be good at sports, because my friends played sports, and it seemed like it made one really cool and popular.

I struggled through a year or two in every sport, and this soup brings me right back to the school canteen on tournament weekends.

Eating at the canteen just wasn’t something I did on a regular basis in school. I always had a packed lunch with my mom’s famous buns and chocolate chip cookies — and I never had extra money to spend.

Tournament weekends were different though — and I got to indulge in my favourites: Tomato Macaroni Soup (yes, I’ve always been a soup lover!), chicken fingers, chocolate milk, Ruffles All Dressed chips. The dinner of champions!
