As the weather gets colder, day by day, all I want to do is sit in front of a lit fire, eat soup and relax at home. But not everyone has those luxuries. Some of us work all day, whether it’s in your cubical or at school. The warmth and flavor of this soup will transport you to the comfort of your home…where ever you may be.

This recipe has been passed on for many generations, between friends and family. Thus, it’s the soup of the people. This show stopper warms you up and will replace all those canned soups in your pantry. If you happen to love it as much as I think you will, you might as well freeze some and heat it up when needed. Trust me, you will want to take out a big pot.
