Talk about perfect timing!!!  The day that The Blizzard of 2011 descended upon my smalltown, the doorbell rang, and voilà!  There, on my front steps, was this HUGE box from MyBlogSpark.  Oh Boy!  Talk about excited!  I ripped it open to find Progresso Light Soup! Lots and Lots of Soup!  And, just in time for lunch! 

So, teen daughter and I decided to try the Progresso Light Beef Pot Roast.  Upon opening the can, I marveled at how "beefy" the broth looked.  Just looking at it made my mouth water.  We heated it up and the smell was divine; when we poured it into our bowls, it smelled and looked so rich and meaty that I couldn't wait to taste it.  One taste and it was as if I was eating my Mom's homemade soup once again.  Seriously.  That is how goooood this soup tasted!  I didn't have to add any seasoning of any was perfect right out of the can.  A nice hot, steamy cup of coffee along with my nice, hot, flavorful bowl of soup and I was good to go.  Take That, Nasty Blizzard!!!   LOL

Available in 40 delicious flavors with 100 calories or less, Progresso® Soup can help curb your hunger, making it easier for you to stick to your weight management plan all year long.
