Postcard Exchange Week # 4: Chesapeake Bay

We are happy to announce that we received  a postcard from our friends in Chesapeake Bay! Thanks to the Bergenholtz Family for joining us in our Postcard Exchange Project and for helping make our geography and cultural learning more fun.

 Food is one major thing that makes a culture unique. It's also one big thing that a certain place is known for. So we think this postcard is so cool!!!

Love that golden accent on the stamps! But much more the recipe that goes with the card.

Chesapeake Bay Crab Soup
2 tablespoons oil
1 carrot, diced
1 medium onion, diced
3 cups chicken broth
3 cups beef cubes
3-4 diced potatoes
3-4 diced tomatoes (canned or fresh)
2 teaspoons seafood seasoning (Old Bay)
1 pound Maryland crab meat
2 tablespoons chopped parsley

Saute the carrot and onion in the oil in a stock pot. Cook until vegetables are softened. Add broth, potatoes, tomatoes and seafood seasoning. Simmer just until the potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes. Add the crabmeat and parsley and heat through.

Hmmm, I think this is very easy to make! Will have to try this soup this week. It must not be as good as having a crabmeat from Maryland :(

We are sending our prayer and blessings to the beautiful Bergenholtz Family and to all residents of Chesapeake Bay. That's our commitment in this project. We say a prayer of blessings to the place where we receive the postcard from.
