It’s time to serve traditional dishes.
Christmas is coming. 
It’s time to start saving to pay for all the gifts and holiday expenses.

Soup is a great money saver.
What’s not to love… 
a big pot of water filled with a little of this, and a little of that.

Most of the time the this or that is something economical.
Like bits of vegetables, or rice or lentils.
Pick up a bag of lentils and make a big pot of soup!
