A nice change from creamy tomato and grilled cheese.
We love spinach in my house. So when I found an easy recipe for spinach soup, I knew I had to put a twist on it. My kids call me the soup nazi because iv musta made over a hundred different soups, but in my house we love hearty, especially if soup in going to be the main course.
Being green is a special bonus because st. patricks day is a big green feast here. We celebrate with lots of green food, after all its my bday and i live in an irish neighborhood which has parade go right past my house and has be going on for close to 100 years now
