“This soup was something that I have made countless times, when my kids were small and we had no money feeding three kids and a hungry DH was hard, but this soup was a favourite everyone loved it and my kids still ask me to make it for them, It is so cheap to make a good store cupbord standby and it won't take you all day to make no fancy additions just plain and simple. You can make it with vegie stock. Also you can add a carrot or two.”
