My kids wore their pajamas inside out to bed last night.
I don't know if this is unique to our household, but my kids believe that if you wear your pajamas inside out it will snow.
Well, it did snow.
But only a light dusting, so they did not miss school (something I was not exactly sad about since they have already missed have of November with conferences and holidays).
What does this recipe have to do with wearing your pajamas inside out?
other than it is a warm comforting soup for those cold nights when the little ones hope it will snow.
