I am sure that at some point everyone has tried the Black-Eyed Bean soup in one version or another. I love all sorts of soups and today, let’s just say the weather is cold, cloudy and pffff…! Oh and I forgot to mention windy!!! I am sitting at my desk at the moment, looking out at this tree in my front garden which is quite tall, and due to the strong winds one of it’s branches keeps banging on the window. (I think that says it all in regards to the weather). 🙁
Back to soups, always a good choice for any time of the year, at least in my home. I have come across so many lovely recipes from bloggers friends and bloggers from all over the world that I would love to try to make in the future 🙂
This is a definite MUST on my To-Do list. 🙂 I hope you enjoy, let me know if you try this out….have a great day everyone!! 🙂
