Fantastic! It's all I can do to make it only once a month so we don't get tired of it. Wouldn't change a thing!

We liked it, but hubby said it wasn't something that he would like to eat all the time.

This was so easy and good and fairly inexpensive. Would like to try with other flavor of soups. Thanks Kitten!
