Ahh, Michigan and spring. Just when you think spring has sprung because of the nice 60s, 70s…and even an 80 degree day…it plummets back to the 40s and 50s. And rains. BRRRR.
Well this soup was perfect to take the chills away, warm me up and it brought a smile to my face because it was so darn delicious.
Maybe I should have called it Springtime Happiness Soup.
Enjoy this soup on your cold spring days…or fall…or winter…it will warm you up in any season!
