Hi Derek and Juanita,

I love watching your videos on Facebook. I saw you making the wedding soup and that’s one of my favorite soups. I had to look up your website and get this recipe so that I can make it. Your family is such a close knit one and gets along so well. I just love your family and all the cooking that you all do. Thanks for sharing!
