Soup is pretty much the greatest matter inward the world. I love, love, love it, too expect frontwards to autumn all twelvemonth long then I tin swallow equally much soup equally humanly possible. Geoff’s favorite is Lycopersicon esculentum soup, too upward until forthwith I hadn’t flora a bully recipe for it.

I ended upward amongst then much leftover that I set 2 meals’ worth inward the freezer too withal had plenty for Geoff too I each to accept a hefty dejeuner component tomorrow. It’s pretty much perfection inward a soup!
