Bean Soup: It's What's For Breakfast

Old Mill of Guildford on Hwy 68 - try their bean soup!On his way out the door this morning, Blair paused to give me a lingering kiss goodbye. He stopped mid-kiss, however, and raised his head and frowned.

Blair: "It's 7 a.m.  Why do you taste like garlic?"

Me: "Maybe because I had bean soup for breakfast?" 

Blair, making a face: "Bean soup?! That's not breakfast food." 

Me: "Think of it like oatmeal. It was warm and filling and delicious. It was the perfect breakfast." 

Blair: "Well then I'm having Doritos for breakfast tomorrow. Mmmm. I'll just pop some in the oven and they'll be warm and delicious. The perfect breakfast." 

Me: "I'd agree with you except my meal has nutritional value. You can't say that about Doritos."

Blair: "I can say your meal is GROSS. And that Doritos are GOOD. Taste trumps nutrition."

He grabbed his lunch and briefcase, winked, and walked out the door. 

Funny, but I'll have the last laugh. You see, I packed his lunch this morning. 

And I gave him an extra big helping of bean soup.

Thanks for sharing the bean soup...delicious!!! However, don't know which "morning breath" would be worse, garlic or Doritos. For romance sake you people should rethink breakfast.

Too funny - and thanks for the tip on the Old Mill at Guilford and their bean soup. I have driven by that mill a lot and I think I have even stopped for a visit at least once. I never realized they offered bean soup though. The next time I drive through that area I will stop and get some.

Everything at Old Mill is excellent. I love their cornbread mix too. Goes well with Bean Soup. :)
