    William (Uncle Bill) Anatooskin's Note:

    This is a soup recipe that I made up in a hurry. I would like to dedicate this recipe to a fine lady, (Lois Stark), who had some difficulty in making a soup out of items she had available. This soup turned our real good.

      Dear Friends, Last week, I was pretty much out of food. I had taken stock of all I had in my pantry and asked for help in trying to turn it into something for dinner for my family. Some members were kind enough to request recipes and words of encouragement. But someone who has since become very special to me, "Uncle Bill", took all my ingredients and turned everything I had into a wonderful satisfying soup that we all enjoyed very much. Not only did it warm our bellies, it also warmed my heart. Thank you "Uncle Bill". And thank you TracyK, Papergoddess, Molly53, DiB's, TCookie, and EdsGirlAngie for caring. I give you all 5 stars! Sincerely, Lois Stark
