When I click on "create a new topic", does it put it underneath (in the group of) "questions and answers"? Guess we'll find out.
I have a soup question, can any of you give me an idea (and the recipe) of a new soup? I make soup every week in my crockpot, and need a new idea. Lately I've made tomato, 15 bean, veggie garlic beef, chicken rice, turkey noodle, black bean, butternut squash, and split pea.
