Made it as first course for Easter dinner. Very yummy! I loved the addition of beef consume as it gave it a nice beefy taste. I did add a couple of fresh thyme sprigs, bay leaf, and a touch of garlic to punch it up a bit, but that is my own personal taste and not a reflection of the original recipe. We all enjoyed this lovely soup. Thank you smartblonde #2 for sharing. Made it for Spring PAC 2014
