Message In a Bottle

A pile of letters creates a garbled message. Unless I straighten up and write right there's no way to tell what I'm trying to say. I could eat my words but where's the fun in that? 

Choosing what I want to say first, makes writing and sending a message easier. Even without punctuation marks, you'll get the gist of what I want to tell you.

Words randomly spilled might make sense, however. Intentionally chosen alphabets will make my message. I can add a mix of seasonings, some herbs, and an easy recipe, seal the cap safely, mail it and you'd get lettered soup. A message in a pot? *grin* Yum, that sounds good too! 

Aha! Imagine us being spies. You could eat my words! And I'd eat yours, and like Scarlett, we'd never go hungry--for food--or penfriendship ever again.

So I've chosen the choicest words and created a friendly little message. I've bottled it, chosen the last season as a label, and in the end spelled out my sincerity before signing off. I hope you'll understand what I said.

Tomatoes feel like they'll be the best postage for a soupcon of my personal version of a summer harvest soup message in a bottle. So here you have it. Dried tomatoes, nicely miniaturized, will just fit before I seal the ingredients. Ah, you deserve a recipe now! The best direction for enjoyment are:

Boil water while you read.
Add sea salt.
Add my words.
Boil until almost tender.
Add spices and seasonings.
Cook until al dente.
Ladle into your favorite soup bowl.
Top with a pat of butter.
Write back.

P.S.  Fresh parsley brightens the flavor but isn't necessary. Better yet? Add your favorite sauteed soup veggies for a bigger soup with a better message.
