  • Soup makes a great summertime meal

    When we think of soup we think of cold winter nights. A big pot of chili simmering for hours on the stove or maybe gallons of chicken noodle to “cure what ails ya.”

    Some soups are cold like gazpacho and melon soup, others are served warm or room temperature like summer minestrone.
