These two soups are probably my favorite soups. I always love to get these at O' Charley's restaurant. I think your sims will like them as well.

These soups are only available for dinner. They have the self-referenced GUIDs in the BHAVs replaced with my own GUID, so it won't overwrite any custom or Maxis foods. These foods are base game compatible, as well as EP ready.

Cloned from Mac and Cheese, so they require the same amount of cooking skill as that.

I just added the English U.K. translation that will make red beans and rice, and loaded potato soup appear in the pie menu, so our friends from the U.K. or anyone that uses English U.K. as their Sims 2 language, should re-download.

I hope you enjoy!

Soup is one of my favourites! :-) I love the look of these soups, but I'm not sure if they're showing up in my game.... I think that the potato one may be showing up as Mac 'n' Cheese in game, when you get the menu from clicking on a fridge, then selecting Serve Dinner....? Since I installed it, there are now 2 Mac 'n' Cheese's on that menu, not one. Not sure about the other one as my laptop won't download it properly (though I'm sure that's an issue with my laptop, not with the file!). If the potato one is showing up as Mac 'n' Cheese, would you be able to change that so it has its proper name?

Now that is VERY strange, because in my game it shows up as Loaded Potato Soup. I don't know how to fix that. I even removed the file I was working on from my downloads folder, and replaced it with this download.

Ah thank you, I think that's what it was. I did notice that in the English U.K. text list it was still 'Mac and Cheese' so I've now fixed that. For the people in the U.K., wait a few hours for the file to overwrite the original, then re-download.

Yay! I'm in the UK, so I assume that that was the problem. Thanks for sorting it out! :-)

**EDIT** I have quite a few other really old CC foods from other creators that I've downloaded that also don't show the right name in the menu, is it easy to sort out? If it is, would you be able to give me a clue how to do it so I can try and sort out the other foods that I have in my downloads folder? If not, no worries :-)

You open it in SimPE look for text lists in the resource tree, and resource list, and then you'll see an arrow next to the English, click that and you will see English U.K. you can then change the pie menu that way. Oh and always click commit, and save.

Yay! Thank you so much! It's about time that someone uploaded some new foods that weren't drinks, snack foods, or default replacements.
