“I originally served this to our gourmet group as a first course. Fortunately, I had made extra, because everyone wanted seconds in spite of knowing there was 3 more course yet to come. I was very pleased they liked the soup but disappointed because my husband and I were looking forward to leftovers for the next day!”
