It is nearing the end of year (once again) and the gloomy, drab rain is starting to roll in. We all need that little pick me up, and this soup will give you just that, or more! Warm and rich, it will definitely warm up your tummy and keep you satisfied as you count down your workdays to that Christmas break that we have all been waiting for. This soup is great for the annual Christmas parties as well!
