Frugal Friday

Ever wonder what gift to give someone who just had a baby?  A teacher?  Your neighbour? Well, how about can make a jar of Friendship Soup for very little cost.  One jar makes enough soup for our family of five for two meals.   Also, you can just make multiple jars of soup ahead of time and have them ready to go for when they are needed.

Just attach a label with the instructions and you're good to go.  If they don't want to use it right away, it can sit in the cupboard until it is needed.  This soup is one that makes your whole house smell delicious and it's packed full of protein to keep you feeling fuller longer.

You can also make yourself a bunch of Ziploc bags full of all the dry ingredients so that you have a meal ready to go when you just don't know what to make.  If you are looking for jars, I bought 12 for $7.99 at Target.   I have wonderful memories of Sunday afternoon soup so I look forward to making this more often to create those memories for our own kids.

Have a wonderful weekend.


PS Thanks to my friend Melissa for gifting me with soup in a jar long ago AND Rachel for gifting us with this soup tureen for our wedding shower.
