Hello friends! What a week! I hope you’re enjoying some of this amazing weather we’re having, now that summer has finally arrived in the Midwest! If you followed our IG stories, you saw some pretty tasty soup we made where the kids smashed the garlic and helped mix in some easy ingredients. The soup is great since there is basically no heat – you can add some easily to your own bowl with paprika, extra salsa or any type of pepper seasoning to spice it up. Here is the recipe we followed from the Food Network.
