Does my lunch from today look tasty to you?

No, it did not come from a queasy cat. Nor did it come from the tushy of a 2-month-old baby. And it most certainly did not come from a demonically possessed 12-year-old girl sullying the clothes of a Priest. Or did it? I heard that pea soup was used at appropriate times in the classic movie, The Exorcist. I saw the move in an urban neighborhood, which meant there was a lot of "audience participation." It was a great time for a kid. My lunch today was actually a can of pea soup from Andersen's Pea Soup in Buellton CA. I stopped there and picked up a bunch of cans on my way to my cousin's wedding in LA. It really is excellent--about as good as pea soup gets. Did my post make you want to rush out and buy a can or two? The cost is only $2.50 per can. Buellton is on Highway 101, North of Santa Barbara CA. I've read that there's also an Andersen's on I-5, but I've never been there. Bon appetit!

I reckon I was trying to be funny. It makes a horrible slurping noise as it drops from the can, and looks at first like a banana slug after an unfortunate encounter with a gastritis-stricken coyote. But after awhile, it starts to look like soup, and the aroma fills the kitchen.
