the recipe forFrog soup sounds similiar to the summer squash I make. You add one potato and summer quash to the mix. You don't even have to peal the squash, just use food processor at the end when it's soft. Then add some light creaM, SALT AND PEPPER TO TASTE! YUMMY CAN'T WAIT FOR THE SUMMER SQUASH

Found your blog through "Frenchy Addict". Quite interesting. I will certainly be back. I also live in the Durham Region area.

Love your broccoli soup, I make the same thing but never tried with cream cheese ... sounds yummy. And your mac and taco meat ... again I do something similar with PC white cheddar macaroni and left over spaghetti sauce - voila lasagna in a pan.
