My morning nurse, Barbara made this for me when I went to her home to have a "LIGHT" dinner - who was she kidding? It was awesome! The soup was absolutely exquisite and it had no cream, which is the way I like it! We were a small crowd and the meal was lovely! We had a salad of mixed greens with all their pretty colors & raspberry vinaigrette and cut-up fresh fruit which was absolutely so sweet and everything she put in there was beautiful - she had cantaloupe, honeydew, pineapple, banana's, kiwi's, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries and I don't know what else - it was delicious tasting and looking!! I suspect she got some recipes from the Food Network but she said it was a combination of recipes!
