Curried Carrot Soup - Vegetarian-2

Curried Carrot Soup And My Failure At “Soup Decor”

Hello? Is it me you’re looking for?

  Umm… yeah. We’re going to be talking about Lionel Richie for a minute. And it’s all because of those feather pictures up there on the wall.  You guys already know that I’ve been working with Graham & Brown for a while now, and I love so much of their stuff. I’ve slapped their wallpaper on…
