  1. Sharon,
    This soup was so delicious at the potluck last Monday evening! It was hearty, tasty, and the broccoli was still bright and crisp, not mushy at all. I'm so glad you posted the receipe. In fact, I was planning on asking you to so I could make it for Frankie. It's just the type of soup he'd go for!
    Thanks So Much,

  2. Souper, Anne! So glad it passed muster and hope it will with Frankie also. I just adjusted the recipe - added soy sauce. It tasted better to me last week when I added a little soy sauce to it. Enjoy,

I have been a stay-at-home mom, sometimes helping to supplement the income from within the home. Now I am a stay-at-home grandmother. Jesus Christ has been my guide and keeper and I have found, in all the trials, heartbreaks and good times that He just keeps getting sweeter and sweeter as the years roll by. My future is secure and I look forward to eternity in the presence of my Creator, Redeemer and King.
