A Backyard Soup Kitchen in Texas

My Great Outdoors

Family: Joe, Julee, Jenna (3) & Jason (4)
Location: Fort Worth, TX

My daughter loves to help me cook in the kitchen, and now that we have an outdoor grill, she's eager to help her daddy by carrying sauces, seasonings and other items from the kitchen to the patio.

We decided to set up a play kitchen area in our backyard so that she can "cook" while we're outside grilling. Her favorite summer recipe - soup!

Thanks Julee! Readers, see a bit more of this space at Warm Hot Chocolate.
