I am delighted to be able to add this wonderful soup to my collection of soup recipes. In the fall and winter, I make soup about once a week. A bowl of soup, along with fresh fruit or a crisp salad is our usual lunch in our retirement years. The only change I made was using a large can of condensed milk instead of the cream, for that is what I had on hand. Thanks, Inez, for a "keeper."
This is true comfort food....we had a cool day & company coming....braving all I made your recipe for the first time & was glad I did..it's a fantastic soup, easy to make & the blend of flavors is perfect....can I give it 5*'s for each of the 4 of us that enjoyed it? We will have this often thru the winter...Thanks for a Great Recipe...
Updating this for Cook-a-thon...it's still a 10star recipe & one I make on rotation thru the fall & winter months..had it again & each time it seems to taste better than I remembered. I have shared this with lots of friends over the years...wow has it been that long? LOL
I fix this soup for my family & more. If I could give this a 10 star I would. What I did different though was use cornstarch to thicken the soup at the tail end. Family rant & raved over this! Thank you MizzNezz
