Cheryl from TidyMom and I have been anxiously awaiting this day. The 2nd Annual SoupaPalooza Linkup Party is finally here!

Last year we were amazed at the large collection of soups shared with us during our first SoupaPalooza. We know that this year will be even bigger and better and can’t wait to see the soups you share!

    I make many soups (such as potato soup or clam chowder, beans, hamburger stew, etc) without following a recipe so, therefore, I don’t have a recipe to submit. Here’s a recipe I first made in January 1998 and it quickly became a favorite.
    Hope you enjoy!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

    I love all kinds of soup but I thought I’d share the recipe for the one I always want when I’m sick. I mean after all, what’s more healing than a nice bowl of soup? :)
