The coming of Spring is a pleasurable thing to behold. The clouds have parted, the wind has warmed up, and there are robins on the farm. We have a a special contest here on Longmeadow Farm. Whoever sees the first robin of the year, and tells any of us on a Saturday Lunch gets a dollar bill. This special contest has been going on since I was knee-high-to-a-grass-hopper. Now I know you can't get rich off of a dollar, but you can however, at least share in the soup. To give the cold Winter months a bid-a-dew, we celebrate with the simple, but tasty chicken soup. I found this originally in "Vitality" magazine, a special insert that my Dad gets in the mail. I started using it, because it just was so darn simple and so darn tasty I think this should certainly celebrate the end of a long winter, and a "Hello!" to that nifty red-robin-redbreast.
