Little Chef

Here is Holly working on Lucky Leek & Potato soup (in honor of St. Patrick’s Day).And a direct quote: “Mom, look how many potatoes I’ve chopped and I haven’t even cut off one finger yet!”She did an excellent job (kept all her fingers!), but did not prefer the soup.  Or the Irish soda bread.  Oh well.
