Today's picture was taken in 1910, and it shows a group of school children enjoying some soup. The picture was taken in Providence, Rhode Island. I love the big heater in the middle of the room. I would imagine that thing could keep the room nice and toasty.
Speaking of soup, Mrs. PJM made a wonderful batch of Roasted Tomato Basil soup yesterday. The tomatoes and basil were fresh from the garden. The recipe started with a good amount of onions and garlic sauteed in olive oil and butter, and then some chicken broth and the roasted tomatoes and basil. It was served with grilled cheese sandwiches. Boy, that was delicious!
