If you think people in your family can't cook, imagine how bad the soup must have been to bury it and leave it untouched for 2,400 years.   

Chinese archaeologists say a bronze cooking pot dug up near the former capital Xian (for 1,100 years - go see the terracotta army at the burial site of Qin Shihuang, the first emperor, there) contains bone soup.   They found it while excavating a tomb because they need an extension of the airport - nothing new, China is sort of like a "Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy" opening when it comes to history getting in the way of Progress.

Back to the soup - it was so bad they buried it in a tomb?   Or maybe the people buried with it needed something tasty for the journey to the afterlife.   They didn't eat it and it turned green due to the oxidation of the bronze

Obviously there is no proof yet the soup was actually soup but, just the same, the Global Times quoted Liu Daiyun of the Shaanxi Provincial Institute of Archaeology as saying, "It's the first discovery of bone soup in Chinese archaeological history" so they must feel pretty confident about it.

I make a mean Italian Wedding Soup but only because the Olive Garden's in California don't carry it.  I miss that about Pennsylvania (it isn't on the menu - or wasn't when I lived there - because they were mass printed, you just knew they had it and ordered it), though not the gray skies and snow until April.
