A fav soup

Top Review by Cindy Lynn

We had such a big dinner last night that I haven't really been hungry all day today, so have snacked a little here and there. Tonight I felt I needed a good meal, but wanted something light. DH raided the fridge early on and snitched a wedge of last night's left-over Great Round Reuben and didn't want anything else. I cut this recipe in half thinking it would be way too much for us. Boy, I wish I would have made the whole thing now. I had a bowl along with some of Inez's [recipe=31382]Poppy Seed Muffins[/recipe]. They were both delicious and went beautifully together! There is just enough soup left-over that I will be reheating it for a side dish for tomorrow's dinner. Thank you for sharing a really terrific and easy recipe Eve!
