A very proud moment for me when Em asked to take my homemade vegetable soup in her school lunch. I made up the soup recipe all on my own and da da da daaahhh----it turned out. :-) I've not tried this before so I was super pleased. It doesn't use any meat product at all. I opened up the cooled container of soup this morning and was pleasantly surprised to find no greasy sheen on the soup. Yeah!! I used a vegetable base--like boullion cubes made by Superior Touch. Above is a picture of my lunch. Last night I had it for dinner and added frozen peas--nice green touch. I meant to add some green beans from our garden, today but forgot. There is plenty left so I'll do that next time.
