I don't know Aunt Idabell, but she sure has one delicious soup recipe. Very creamy and rich. Great combination of seasonings that did not overpower. My family and I enjoyed this one. Comfort food extraordinaire. Thank you Nurse Di.
This is tasty, easy comfort food. I omitted the celery simply because I forgot to buy some. I don't think the recipe suffered for that at all. When my BF asked me to warm up a bowl for him later, I added some chopped up bacon, which was a great addition. I think some broccoli would work really well in this soup also. YUM! Thanks NurseDi!
