Recipe for Cream of Salt and Pepper Soup

One day, Alice Brock saw a tour bus coming up the drive to her restaurant and she suddenly remembered she was supposed to feed 40 people a full lunch. She didn't have any soup made, so she improvised this Cream of Salt and Pepper Soup on the spot. Brock says, "Soup is any kind of food cooked in enough liquid to make eating it impossible with a fork."

Sautee some onions in butter
Add chicken stock and heat
Just before serving, add fresh heavy cream
Add salt and pepper to taste
