Update on soups…..still going. still only have repeated soups twice…mushroom and french onion….scroll down to see full soup up to day!!

Here are the soups i have made so far, starting in end of November, through to today.  I have made soups every week, except for two I think.

update.. as of this past weekend i have made 15 soups, repeating only one soup:mushroom. i have many more soups up my sleeve…i totally appreciate all of you soup-ers!! it makes me feel good to be feeding you all. this is a labor of love. for my two families that so generously prepaid for 3 and 4 months ahead of time, i wanted to update you on how many orders you have left that are prepaid. diana: you have 4 orders of 2 qts/order left. robin and teo, you have 8 orders left of 2 qts/order. if you think i am mistaken call me and i will go over my list again..but am rather sure i am right. i will keep making soups for at least 2 more months, maybe 3….and will do it again starting in the fall. during the summer i may do an occasional cold soup and maybe spread out to pasta sauces and other food. thanks so much for your dedication and enthusiasm!

love and kisses, norah/mama ceres
