Mother's Day was celebrated at my son and daughter-in-law's home, where we had a great cookout. There was so much food that even eleven people could not put a dent in it! So leftovers were shared with everyone, and you can tell I just got creative with the BBQ chicken I brought home. I almost called it "Everything but the kitchen sink soup" but I did a search and found there were other recipes with that name. I learned from my mother to use-up what is available, and it turns out delicious too!
