White House Soup of the Day

The White House Soup of the Day as first reported by MSNBC’s “The Daily Rundown” is…

Tuscan Chicken.

“It’s nothing yesterday, the mess was closed,” Host Chuck Todd explained. “Today? Pretty good opening offer. Tuscan Chicken. [Really long, tension-filled pause] I never quite know what it means when you add the Tuscan. Does it mean more rosemary, more oregano?” (Memo to Todd: Recipes we scanned featured extra virgin olive oil, Italian plum tomatoes, and Italian parsley. Tuscan cooking implies simplicity, long connected to an impoverished culture. The cooking style typically includes bread, oil and no salt.)
