There comes a point in time when I am tired of the summer weather. I know many of you won't agree with me but I long for sweaters and fires and cozy comfort. That is probably one reason why I decided I needed to ignore the 75 degree weather in the beginning of October and make some soup.
I love soup. It takes me back to those childhood days of tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches my mom would make me. It was soup out of a can but it still gave you the warmth and cozy home feeling after the chill of the autumn air.
I had seen this soup recipe in our local newspaper and of course I couldn't leave it alone...I had to put my own spin on it. I am so glad I did because as we were sitting around the table in our shorts and flip-flops, my husband said to me that if we weren't already married, after eating this soup he would have married me! How is that for a testimonial on how good this was?
This is super easy to make so even on a busy day, you can have this for your family dinner. A salad and some crusty bread will make it a complete meal.
Cold weather will be here soon and I will be making this again. Heavy socks, a warm sweater and a bowl of this soup will take me back to my mom's kitchen. I don't know about you, but it doesn't get any better than that.
