Guess who won our snowbank scavenger hunt?

We had a scavenger hunt, and some of you scavenged. We can prove that at least one person did, anyway, because we’re naming Deborah Brink the winner! She successfully discovered six of the seven snowbanks, and would perhaps have had all seven with more lenient graders (we were looking for Franklin Pierce statue, not the State House). Anyway, Deborah has won a $20 gift card to the Concord business of her choice. Congrats Deborah, and...

Let us be your tour guide for all the soups you didn’t know existed

Tim made a buffalo chicken soup that didn’t have to be thrown out

After spending a week talking nothing but soup, I had to make one myself.

Early on I decided it had to have buffalo chicken in it. Why? Because I like it, that’s why. So Mary and I searched the internet and cook books looking for helpful...

As the towns people contribute vegetables and spices, the soup gains flavors and taste until all the important ingredients have been added. It...
