When I was growing up, my mom used to package up most of the ingredients for 10 bean soup with a recipe and give to family and friends. Hal and I have done it a few years too, but not in ages. So yesterday we went to the store to get the ingredients. This is a quick and easy gift no matter what the occasion.
