It’s soup season and I’m on a roll. I love curling up with a good book and a bowl of soup when it is cold and rainy outside. This one was so good I didn’t make enough. Between my husband and me, we downed this tub of goodness in two days still craving more. It’s so simple, easy and hits the spot. Enjoy!
