Notes

This recipe comes from dual effort (Michael and Mine).

We make this soup almost weekly. I can't stop craving it. It's enough for a dinner, and then 3-4 lunches depending on your family size.

We just tweaked this recipe adding what ever sounded good. So this comes straight from yours truly.

Serving suggestions: with egg noodles, rice, matzah crackers, soup nuts, or as is.

Enjoy.

A dash of local for every season
