Nico's does. When homemade, soup is nourishing -- often full of veggies and always rehydrating. Plus, a mug of piping-hot soup is simply an enormously pleasant lunch experience. The wonderful aromas float up on the steam, the mug gives your hands a satisfying warmth, and the heat forces you to take tiny spoonfuls, slowing down your lunch to a leisurely pace.
I make myself a giant pot of soup at least once a month, eating some and freezing the rest in individual portions for lunches. Trouble is, I get bored eating the same lunch all month. I recently made a delicious pot of butternut squash and pear soup that was flavored with a vanilla bean steeped in cream. Amazing. Awesome. Ambrosial. . . . Until I had to eat that sweet soup for the 8th time. (As you may know by now, I'm not a huge fan of sweetness as a dish's main taste experience.) I was so over that soup by the end of that month.
