Souper Power

I actually have many fond memories of carrying a calculator while grocery shopping with my Mom.  I liked the game of “let’s try and feed everyone for less than one-hundred dollars this week.”  I should probably mention that we were a family of six.

I was up for the challenge of finding the healthiest choices for the best prices, and it’s a challenge I’ve continued to stay up for.

Lately, I’ve been wondering if my propensity for frugality at the grocer means that I’m operating from mindset of scarcity, as opposed to abundance.

Then I made a killer turkey soup.

Fresh turkey breast was on sale this week – which made me very happy because I knew I could roast it for dinner, slice it up for lunchtime sandwiches, and take the scraps (along with whatever produce I had left in the fridge and freezer) and turn them into the most unctuous, comforting soup.

Each meal (and the soup especially) filled my family’s bellies as well as our souls.

And that my friend, is abundance.
