This is my favorite soup. Everything but the kitchen sink creates this pot full of goodness for mind, body and soul. A great comfort food when the weather gets cold, or serve it anytime of the year, when you just want a satisfying soup to come home to.
Sometimes, I make this soup on Saturday afternoon and refrigerate. When we come home from church, all we have to do is warm it up and enjoy. Any meal you can cook ahead of time will save you time and trouble when you are ready to eat. Planned meals are a great way to keep your diet on track.
