did you know january is national soup month? i love soup for dinner. with a salad and a fresh baked loaf of bread, soup may be one of my favorite winter meals. the kids do not agree with me on this. but, add that soup to  bread bowls and they are all in. it makes no sense.  it is the same soup, the same bread, but when you put the soup in the bread they love it.
