I love soup. It’s so yummy and warming during the colder months! This soup one happens to be amazing, too! It makes a large pot! It’s a good thing, too…because my family kept going back for seconds and thirds! This is soup is similar to potato soup, but it’s a bit heartier with more veggies and meat!
