Soup's on, . . Here's my very good Creamy soup. This is a basic recipe. But its Oh So good in the Winter, and really warms the tummy with nice slice of fresh baked Hot from oven french Bread. . . enjoy. Note: Cream soups do not keep well, they will break down and turn to water, So be sure to use it all with in the same day.
