Soup Singles – Italian Herb Soup Gift in a jar

Soup Singles - Italian HerbGifts in a jarWarm up a winter meal with Soup Singles – Italian Herb Gifts in a jar.  This soup single makes the perfect meal for one or an appetizer for two.  I added a few variations to the bottom of the ingredients if you are making a bunch of them for yourself.  I like to give them to my single friends and to my elderly neighbors.  And I will let you in on a little secret we keep them in our emergency travel kit.  For the kit I have them in vacuum sealed pouches.  We rotate out the food items every six months.  We keep enough food in it for our family of 4 to eat for 3-5 days, not including the rice.

To decorate the Soup Singles mason jar I used DecoArt Paint, Twine from Hemptique and Buttons Galore Buttons and my trusty hot glue gun from Adtech.
