The morning of our last day of Thanksgiving Break, Cesar and I had hoped to sleep in.  I think the kids took pity on us and didn't rise till eight!  Vovo spoiled us with more of her waffles and she made a delicious Portuguese soup for lunch.  Hugo wouldn't touch it.  He didn't even try it.  Well, I tried it, and three bowls later was singing, "there's a party in my tummy, so yummy, so yummy!"  The soup is called Caldo Verde and reminded me a lot of a dish which my family calls Fish Soup.  There is no fish in our soup, you simply have to "fish" for pieces of ham amongst the potatoes and onion slices.  Caldo Verde is a simple potato, chourico (Portuguese sausage) and kale soup.  Delicious.
