Iron deficiency


The Hairpin has recently been studying the sociology treatise What Is A Wife and as a result revealed to the world the mysterious Rule #3 of proper female spousery: the ability to “…make supper for a guest out of two cans and a head of lettuce.”

Perhaps this is why I failed as a wife – I didn’t even know I was supposed to be able to make supper for a guest out of two cans and a head of lettuce, let alone be able to perform the task. I can, however, make “a grand new full-meal soup” out of five cans and a carton thanks to my Better Homes & Gardens book Meals In Minutes. 

SOUP-KETTLE SUPPER

1 can condensed cream of vegetable soup
1 can condensed cream of chicken soup
1 can condensed onion soup
2 cups milk
1 8-ounce can cream-style corn
1 4-ounce can Vienna sausage

Mix soups together; stir in milk and corn. Slice sausage links in coins; add. Cover; heat slowly, stirring often till soup comes just to boiling. Makes 6 servings.

No lettuce required, though I do need something inside the cans. Take that, What Is A Wife.
