    I love the variety here. That soup looks good because I love anything with pesto. Hold the Thai dish … I have a peanut allergy. But everything else looks amazing.

    • Reply Chava 30 March 2017 at 9:24 am

      Oh, yes–then you better avoid the Thai dish! I wonder if it would work with any other kind of nuts.
