Hi, you don't know me but I visit your blog often! I just don't usually comment.
I am going to try to make your "alphabet soup" and it calls for one jar of V-8 juice but doesn't say what size??? V-8 also comes in the large cans. So what do you usually use?

I love all the recipes! I am a vegetarian so a lot of times I just leave out the meat.

Wow thanks for getting back to me so fast! Just added it the grocery list. I am going to try to make it this week. I will let you know when I do and how it turned out :-)

I read Made to Crave last year, it is a wonderful book. I plan to re-read it within a group setting soon.

I am a homeschooler too, to my almost 12-year-old daughter. :)

Have a blessed week,
