    Na, dann wären wir ja schon mindestens zu zweit, was gesunde Blogger im kommenden Jahr angeht… ich wußte nicht, dass Schnittlauch diesen Einfluss hat, aber ich glaube jetzt einfach mal ganz fest daran ;-)
    So eine Suppe könnte ich jetzt auch gebrauchen, hier regnet es in Strömen.
    Ein schönes Fest wünsche ich Dir und Deinen Lieben.
