African Peanut Soup Day

I’m a big fan of soup for lunch.  Such a big fan, that I eat soup for lunch almost every day.  And no soup-for-lunch day is better than African Peanut Soup day.

Dianne’s Catering posts their weekly specials on Mondays, and I always look to see if I’m going to get to eat my favorite soup (I think it’s on a three-week rotation, along with the rest of their soup options; otherwise I’d probably eat it daily until I never wanted to eat it again.  It’s possible that my obsession with the soup is because I don’t get to have it whenever I want it.  It’s like tulipomania, but soupomania!).

Just how good is this soup?

So good, that when I arrived at Dianne’s at 11:30, there were already 17 people in line.  And by the time I was at the front of the line, there were 23 people behind me (I counted).

So good that when my boss called from Juneau, and I gloatingly told her what I was eating, she screamed in envy.  Yes, it’s that good.  Grown women scream when they miss African Peanut Soup day.

I can’t tell you when the next African Peanut Soup day will be, but I can tell you that whenever it is, I’ll be standing in line at Dianne’s by 11:30.

I love Anchorage. I love what it is, what it's been, and what I dream it will be. I share my adventures with DJ (my husband), my fabulous family and friends, two frenchies named Grover and Teddy, and now, all of you. If you love Anchorage too, get in touch - guest posts are welcome!

  1. I must say this is GOOD soup – I was pleasantly surprised – and I too saw the hordes of people standing in line for soup – will Diane’s be the next soup nazi location?
