WOW! NoraMarie this is a delicious soup recipe! True comfort food at its best and perfect for a cold winter's day. Served it with whole grain bread for a wonderful lunch.My DD made it while DH and I were out running errands and it smelled so good when we arrived home. Made in memory of Nora's DH Ed.
