We thought we’d try something new this year (okay it’s taken us till February to get this all together) of every Friday sharing a favorite recipe or family tradition idea. We hope you leave a comment and share your’s too.
Here in Portland, it’s raining. Surprised? Often times we have soup at our house and this is a favorite.

1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon dried Thyme
