Nothing can beat a bowl of steaming hot soup to warm the soul! This hearty chicken (or beef) vegetable soup is especially welcome and satisfying on a cold winter's day, or if you're feeling a bit under the weather. Serve with a crusty French bread or rolls and fresh butter; would also be great topped with matzo/matzoh balls, freshly chopped dill, and fresh lemon slices. From my mother, who has been making this soup since time immemorial. Enjoy!
