In January of 2014 we had an awful snowstorm. This is not unusual in Michigan, but neither is the runs on a store. This is the soup my daughter and I made by picking up the leftovers of the people hoarding ingredients that will show up in 3 days... 3 rules to Hercules' Soup: (1) shant be no white beans! (2) Spinach is optional!!! (3) You must include tortilleni!!!
