Well, we did it! We made this delicious soup in the backyard. Cesar is very excited about this. Now he says we have one more thing we can make when we go camping. I must admit this was really fun. We laughed so much in the process of making this. I guess one thing I have learned is no matter what life throws at me I can find some humor in it. Did I mention the garage door spring broke and we had to fix that too? At our home things usually happen in threes so who knows whats next.

Enjoy the soup!
