Great Soup. Would cut down on the Boul cubes though

OH MY GOSH! This is fantastic! Everyone loved it. My 10yr old son hates soup, he asked to take some to school. That says a lot. My husband had 2 bowls, he never has seconds on dinner unless he really likes something. Will be making this often. Thanks, Kelly!
