Jim in Washington's Note:
I read a similar recipe to this on Cooks.com. When I would watch my 2 DGDs after school, in the winter, they would want something warm. I experimented a little and came up with this recipe they seem to like. I got to be looking forward to a steaming bowl of this soup with a handful of croutons floating in it,too. I used this soup to test various croutons too. A real quick, simple meal. Any of these ingredients may be omitted or others added. I am still experimenting, too. I started using small soup mugs for the children when I discovered their smaller hands could control the mug, because of the handle,better, plus they think it is cool.
