    I think this is so thoughtful!!! My mom lives across from me, and she loves soup, and I am no Betty Crocker, when it comes to cooking! Lol!But, this way the ingredients are already pre-measured and everything, for her, so, this will save time, if she is under the weather, or just not up to making soup from scratch, so thank you sooo much!!! And it makes a great holiday gift as well!!! :)
