    Hello Martha,
    I think I have more recipes for soup than anyone I know , except you and Jack. I truly love soup and all the children and grandchildren have their favorites. This recipe looks and sounds delicious, and we need more soup before warmer weather gets here in the Mid South. The daffodils are popping up everywhere…..won’t be long. The stuffed peppers and shrimp, from last week’s post were so tasty.
    Always learning from A Family Feast,

      Thanks Linda! So glad you enjoyed the recipes! One of Jack’s friends calls him “The Soup Guy” and he always asks Jack to bring a pot of soup whenever we visit. It’s one of his favorite types of recipes to make! (We’re still waiting for signs of spring here in New England – although I did see some green leaves (guessing daffodils or some other early bulks) starting to sprout up on a sunny street corner in town earlier this week. I’m ready for warmer weather!) 🙂
