Baby, it’s cooooold outside! I think it is high time we celebrate one of our favorite comfort foods.…… SOUP!
Soup is one of those things that everyone can equate back to their childhood. My mom always made the best chicken noodle soup, served on our silver “sick tray” in bed when we were under the weather. When you come in from a cold day of snow fort building, what do you want? Soup!
and like every great party……..there will be PRIZES from some fabulous sponsors!!
