The nutmeg makes this extra-special. Great comfort food for freezing-cold winter days.

Delicious! I love simplicity. And I appreciate the fact that I didn't need a broth. Sorry, I didn't use any nutmeg. That spice is just not up my alley. Tasty enough for me and my kids that I would make it again and again.
