At the start of fall I start making this hearty soup, Been making it for as long as I can remember, at first it was hard getting the kids to eat it because it had these little round somethings in it that they thought they didn't like, but when they did try it they loved it and always ate more then one bowl. I like to add sliced mushrooms to the soup.
