Last Stop Variety Greek Minestrone Soup With Feta

Do I need words to describe how delicious and hearty and freakin fantastic the soups are at Last Stop?  No, I don’t think so.

Where will you be shopping this week?

With Market Basket opening Wednesday morning at 7am, the grocery price wars will be beneficial to all of us. Shaw’s and Stop and Shop have some great deals this week. I think I’ll be shopping the sales. How about you? Will you be heading for MB or checking out the flyers for the best prices?
