Discovery Center Stone Soup Lunch
The Stone Soup Story: A beggar asked alms at a lordly mansion but was told by the servants they had nothing to give him. “Sorry for it,” said the man,” but will you let me boil a little water to make some soup of this stone?” This was so novel a proceeding, that the curiosity of the servants was aroused, and the man was readily furnished with saucepan, water, and a spoon. In he popped the stone, and he begged for a little salt and pepper for flavouring. Stirring the water and tasting it, he said it would be the better for any fragments of meat and vegetables they might happen to have. These were supplied, and ultimately he asked for a little catsup or other sauce. When fully boiled and fit, each of the servants tasted it, and declared that stone soup was excellent. (As explained in the Dictionary of Phrase and Fable,written by Ebenezer Cobham Brewer and published in England in 1905.) Please join us on Tues. 26th during your child's lunch time for our version of Stone Soup. See sign up sheets in classrooms to bring veggies to add to the soup.
