Food of the month, food of the day.

Did you know that it is National Soup Month?  Me either, until I was watching the news this morning.

Since it is cool (not really cold) and rainy here in Dallas, I plan to make soup tonight.  I made soup last night….I’ve been staying true to the Monthly theme.  BooYa!

That got me thinking, which got me web searching, which lead me to this website…..
