Here is a recipe I found in
Womans World Magazine in 2010.
It is a delicious and satisfying little soup to have on a blustery day...like today! Brrrrrr!!
When ever I make it I double the recipe, and freeze what is not eaten that day.
It is always nice to be able to grab a bag from the freezer,and have supper already made. HA!
More time for.....exercising.
Likeshopping with the girls!! LOL
