There is a chill in the air, winter is on the way. I see snow flurries reported already. That means its soup time!
I remember walking into the kitchen on a cold day and seeing a big pot of soup ready to serve. It warms you from the inside out and tastes delicious.
Mom always had plenty of soup ready as we often had extra guests. She would think nothing of adding some extra settings for company. Mom was a special lady with a huge heart. There would also be homemade bread to go along with the soup.
Enjoy this meal with friends and family, it is the best way to spend time together and enjoy each others company.
