This is one of our favorite soups any day of the week but especially on a day like today which has been windy and pouring rain all day thanks to Hurricane Patricia! Our son had to work today and asked that I save him and his boys some of this warm soup as soon as he learned it was on today's menu! You can add or subtract ingredients according to your taste! We love to eat this soup with a pan of hot freshly baked cornbread and the entire family loves it! I've made it for opening night dinner at our hunting club which it was a favorite also!
