My grandmother used to read us that story when we were little. Even as a little kid, I understood and loved the moral: as individuals, they had didn't have enough resources, but when they teamed up to pool their resources, they had plenty. A great lesson in business, families, and life.

Thanks, jabbur!

My favorite way to have tomato soup is with chick peas & a hint of lemon. There was a restaurant names St. Basil's that always made it that way & I just loved it with crusty parmesan bread.
