This is my favorite soup to make! It's great for any season and is so customizable. The measurements are rough guesses as I don't EVER measure when making this recipe. It's that easy! You add your ingredients to your own tastes and season as you go. You can also easily cook this meal in a slow cooker. So, beware, my measurements might not be accurate at all, but as you make this soup, you will quickly see that measurements aren't necessary.
