Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

cannon-camera-november16-085

Sharing food with friends and family has always been one of my favorite things.  I have many childhood memories of our house filled with friends and everyone’s bellies filled with lots and lots of great food!  Now that I’m an adult I still love to pack our sweet little house with lots of friends, and fill up their tummies with food while they fill up my heart with love.

Friendship.  Deep meaningful friendship is such an important thing in life.  I am thankful everyday for the many friendships in our lives.  We are rich beyond measure because of the friends we have.

A big pot of this soup certainly doesn’t hurt ones chances of making and keeping friends.  Get that pot ready, and then get ready to talk, laugh, cry, dream and devour some deliciousness with your closest friends.
