Don't you just love Bead Soup!
Not familiar with bead soup? Its recipe is simple. First, you take a big ole bowl (or, in my case, an old cookie tin). Then, you throw in all your mismatched beads. Mix well, and dive in. Yummy, yummy! The best part of Bead Soup is its diversity. You can serve it at any function-- formal or casual (or, best of all, at a pajama party). And it's low in calories! It never spoils, and in fact gets better over time. And you can always add new ingredients, the more the merrier.
Here's what I pulled out of my own Bead Soup this week.
