Hi Bonnie, yum yum this was good soup as you know we love soup in our house, very few day's pass that we don't have it even in summer and this one was GOOD! The sage gave it a very nice flavour, I usualy make mine a bit different from this so it was a very nice change. I didn't tell DH that it was a change of recipe and when he tasted it he said Mmmmm! that's different and I think he preferred your's but he wouldn't commit to it, but he did give it 5 stars so it's Grandad's turn to try now and I am sure he will love it, as he loves his soup. Made for fall PAC 09.
