OK, I was playing a little with the words there, but I couldn't resist! I recently had a very nice conversation with Kimber McGrey and well, this is the result. I'm thrilled and honored to be a part of the 2012-2013 Jillibean Soup Design Team. I have loved the people behind this great company for a long time. They've been there for me through thick and thin; stopping by the Jillibean booth at CHA is a time honored tradition. So I'm excited to be a part of the madness for the next year. And I want to give a shout out to a special friend I see on the list, Katrina Hunt! Congrats on the Guest Designer gig dearie! Guest Designer gigs at Jillibean Soup can lead to good things!
P.S. I really am glad it's getting cooler and it actually is soup weather, because I, unlike the owner of Jillibean Soup, really do LOVE soup. I made my first pot of Wild Rice and Ham soup this week (it wasn't an all out winner, Ethan said it would be a lot better with chicken and noodles instead of ham and wild rice... but it was wonderful to smell it percolating in the crockpot all day), I think today I'll make this Black Bean Soup from Our Best Bites. It's one of my all time favorites and it's fast and easy! And super healthy!
