“This is my version of a very tasty soup recipe that was in the local newspaper. It's a good idea to make the vegetables all about the same size dice, they cook evenly that way. I used half chicken stock and half water, but I'm sure that vegetable stock would be great too that way the soup could be kosher and or vegetarian!”
