All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.

This is going to be wonderful for my soup collection! I have friends with large, busy families and I like to make a big ole pot of soup to give them when I know they are in a particular crunch for time and energy.

Thanks for sharing this one; I know it will be appreciated by many people!

Chenno. This is my kind of recipe. If you don't have something, leave it out. If you don't like something, leave it out. If you want something different, put it in. Wonderful. A true soup, a true recipe. [thumb]
