Progresso Soup Give Away and French Onion Soup


Note: Thanks to Progresso for sending me the following 15(!) cans of soup to sample. Thank goodness, because it is way too cold here in Boston! They also sent me a very huge soup bowl and a jump rope!

I love Progresso soups. I used to bring a can of soup for lunch. I love soup, especially since I am always cold. I love progresso soups, in particular, their "light" line of products. They don't require a can opener, the lid just pops off. This makes it easier to take on the go! Be on the lookout for recipes featuring these yummy soups!
