Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day 
or a Recipe of the Day

Moroccan Harira Soup is the Holidays and Observances Recipe of the Day for May 7th!

Today, May 7th is National Roast Leg of Lamb Day.  We didn't have a recipe for that, but we do have a recipe for Moroccan Harira Soup that can be made with Lamb.

Kerry lived in Morocco for 8 years and here is what she had to say about the soup - "Harira is the traditional tomato soup of Morocco that is full of garbanzo beans and lentils. It is simply the best soup that I have ever eaten, although I had to acquire the taste of cilantro! Moroccans make it all year long, but especially during Ramadan to break the fast. You can get the recipe from Kerry's, Healthy Diet Habits website at the link above!
