I thought you might like to try my most favorite cornbread recipe this week with one or several of your soups. I posted it late last week … enjoy!

Blogging Team,

I can’t wait to see what mystery soup is. Have a great week.

Wow that’s a lot of soup. I thought I was doing good having it once a week :) I’m not a big fan of soup but it is great for the budget in most cases that is for sure.

My experiment night so far has been a night to try reworking an old recipe into a slow cooking recipe or trying a whole new train of thought without commitment as to what I’m going to call it before it’s done! LOL it’s my freestyle night.

No one else here likes soup, but I love it. I think I’m going to do a pumpkin soup this week.
