Soups & Sweet Treat 5.23.13

I am late again.  Something about this time of year- endless soccer games, beds to mulch, veggies to plant, winter clothes that still need to be put away- even with the extra daylight there is never enough time!

I am excited about this weeks soups!  This winter I received Jerusalem a cookbook.  What a beautiful book!  Since, at the recommendation of a friend, I also purchased Plenty by the same author.  The meat soup is from Jerusalem & the veggie from Plenty.  Yum!
