I love Food Network. The kids and I had just finished watching Throwdown with Bobby Flay when I started making squash soup. I left some leeks and a cutting board on the counter and Maeve came in and decided to make some soup of her own. Her soup contained leeks, lots of salt, water and Italian seasoning. She was so impressed by her recipe that she challenged me to a throwdown. In proper throwdown style, we brought in two unbiased judges (grandparents) to rate our soups on taste, texture and presentation.
