83. Out of the mouths of babes: Coconut-Red Lentil Stew

So when people hear about the Soup365 project, the first question they ask is usually: "Are you crazy?" And the second one is generally "What does your family think about eating all that soup?" Now, honestly, I've been waiting for … Continue reading
