Dear Mr Heinz. Are you seriously kidding me. Is such misleading packaging even legal? Love Cathy.
Actually that's not exactly what I wrote but I did write to the Heinz people today to ask about the large disrepancy between photo of product, and actual product. I know that food styling occurs for marketing purposes but I don't think the soup in the bowl on the can even contains any of the actual product. It couldn't possibly. Maybe bleaching the soup and adding chunks of potato and green spinach is a serving suggestion?
Anyways, in other more pleasant culinary news; today I made potato gnocchi with pumpkin, sage and burnt butter sauce and it was delicious. It was all the more delicious for the fact that both the pumpkin and the potatoes were home grown! yay.
