  1. I thought I was the only mother who called for teenagers to come to dinner (and didn’t) so I banged pots one day. I was very loud but they came. They would have come faster if this soup had been on the table. We all loved tortilla soup.

    1. OH my one of my biggest pet peeves is getting dinner all on the table and waiting as the team slowly rolls in. I can remember sitting at the table waiting for my mom to put dinner on. Seriously. Kids these days!! LOL
