Last night I tried a new recipe. I somehow ended up on an email list (don't you love those) from a website called The Cancer Project and they send me recipes that are healthy and good for in help with fighting disease.
My kids liked it and that is good b/c it's super good for you, and Aaron and I liked it as well. I would say that it's not my favorite soup ever, but it's easy and healthy and sometimes you just need that. It is pretty carrot-y (did I just make up that word?) tasting, but after all it is called CARROT SOUP! I also made cauliflower soup and it is still a favorite of mine.
