***Here's a little Chicken Soup story I would like to share with you....All our grandchildren love chicken soup, so when grandma visited them, she would fill a "Polly O" Ricotta cheese container (which was cleaned and used for storage) and bring the chicken soup. One day, while shopping with Matthew (who was 3 at the time), he spotted a "Polly O" container in the cheese section at Shop Rite, and shouted with extreme joy, "Look grandma, they're selling your chicken soup in the store."
