    Is chunky soup not just stew? Or is watery stew just soup? What's the deal mang?
    That's the way the potato mashes.
    That's the way the pan flashes.
    That's the way the market crashes.
    That's the way the whip lashes.
    That's the way the teeth gnashes.

    I think Stew just has bigger bits of stuff in it
    I plan on beating him to death with his kids. I'll use them as a bludgeon on his face. -

    stew is all about the lumps. like you have stew on a plate, them mop the last bit up with bread. with soup you use bread first then drink teh soup when it's cool enough to not need blowing on.

    so scientaficallly

    if you use bread then cutlery it's soup
    if you use cutlery then bread it's stew

    You britons might well have buggered up the original meaning of the word, a century or two ago.

    We've got a word here that's very similar to the word "stew", and when it is used it means that the dish has been boiled/cooked with milk.

    Water base- soup.
    Milk base- ~stew.

    That site confuses me.

    I was just gonna' say that it might be to do with the speed in which you cook it.


    Boil slowly or simmer for stew, just boil for soup, maybe
