This soup is good, really good. Plus, to top it all off easy to make. Win, Win! I got this recipe from Tracy at shutterbean.com. I blogged about donuts I made from her website a while ago. Also, VERY good. except I totally messed them up. Rookie mistakes. Good thing making soup is pretty hard to mess up...!
