  1. Great Sunday night supper. The flavor is robust and hearty. Tasted like I spent hours in the kitchen. It was super easy to make, and I was looking for a quick, tasty, hearty soup. Thanks, Beaner, for posting this keeper.
  2. This recipe was very easy & tasty. My husband ate 2 bowls for dinner & then took 2 more bowls to eat for lunch at work the next day. This soup did not set around long at all.


I have lived in Vancouver since 1987. I am a transplant from Minnesota. We have 3 grown sons, a wonderful daughter in law, 2 beautiful granddaughters,1 grandson 2 dogs (1 Border Collie named Molly and 1 Australian Shepherd/Border Collie mix named Gulliver, that we rescued) . I am for now working in property management and still trying to decide what I want to be when I grow up. My job is interesting, but quite demanding! My DH wants me to quit, I would love to stay home and be his goddess. I love to be at the beach flying kites, sailing with our friends, billiards,cooking, grilling and entertaining friends and family. We downhill ski in the winter and enjoy our family and our animals . If I had a month off I would love to spend it with our family together at warm tropical destination. Just enjoy our grown children and our grandchildren. Then when that trip came to an end, I would love for my DH & I to spent some time somewhere warm and tropical all alone. I could become quite the traveler. We had some life changes last October, I lost my balance and fell. I had 2 spiral breaks in my leg, my tibia and my fibula and another small half moon break. I did have some surgery and have 3 plates and 16 screws in my leg until this coming spring in March, then I will have some hardware removed, hopefully. Had to give up some sports! But heck it could be a lot worse. My DH just started a new job! That's good news!
