Santa’s Soup

This is a lovely, creamy, filling soup – perfect for those Christmas school holiday days when you re so busy you need something super quick and easy but will  give you lots of energy to keep going all afternoon. 

I also believe this may just be exactly what Santa needs for him and Rudolph on Christmas night to keep them warm and give them lots of energy too. 

Actually, here’s a great idea – why not print off the recipe for Santa to bring home – its super cold up there  in the North Pole all the time – I bet the elves would go crazy for it!! 

You can thank me later when you get an extra great present this year!! 

Merry Christmas
