Mark’s brother Kyle brought us a family heirloom last week. Its a giant, antique, cast iron cauldron, that was used annually in his home town to make chowder for the town wide celebration. As the population of the town has dwindled, the town required fewer cauldrons, and Mark’s brother managed to obtain the one that had been in their family for over 100 years, which the town no longer needed. Since Kyle didn’t have a place for it, it came to live with us. And we wasted no time in trying it out. It worked well with the raised fire pit we already had.
And we wasted no time in hosting a soup party.
