There are many versions of the story “Stone Soup”. The one I chose was about soldiers coming home from war. They were hungry and tricked villagers into sharing their food by making soup from a stone.
It took the soup took just under a half hour to cook. I had cut the vegetables quite small, one so it would cook quickly and two to decrease any choking threat.
I brought my bread maker and made a loaf of bread to go with it. I think the children enjoyed the bread more then the soup.
But they did enjoy the soup too.
