I have had all day to cook, clean & bake…..& cook, clean & bake….you get the idea?! This all came about by looking to see what I had in the fridge & poof…Paleo Vegetable Soup! I made a huge pot, full of every vegetable I had! It went delicious with a couple slices of Flax Bread! (available for order on my menu!) Get chopping people!
