It's been forever since I've blogged.... Life just gets too crazy sometimes.  Like now!

Lately I've been on a huge soup kick.  Seems to be all I think about... well that and risotto!  So I haven't actaully made this soup yet but it's on the grocery list for this week.  I'm sure it's going to turn out great!!
