Soups & Sweet Treat 5.16.19t

Greetings!  I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend. Once again it looks like Thursday will be the perfect soup weather!  While I love making soup, I am getting tired of soup weather and am ready for picnic weather…or bbq weather…or turn the heat off for good weather!  Some of you have been asking when I will wrap it up for the season. At this point I am letting the weather dictate the date. Once it consistently reaches the 70’s people begin to have their soup fill until September. In the meantime, enjoy a quart or two this Thursday and fill the freezer the hiatus that will eventually arrive!
