This is a family favorite. As with any Soup make it your own. Add carrots,green peppers~Grandma just added what she had on hand from the garden to brighten the soup up in the summer. In the winter it was perfect and a wonderful comfort food. You will notice More or less used~ this is because she used her hands and threw in the spices.
