Personal Notes:
Mom served me this creamy soup using Lactaid milk, a special milk she bought for the recipe because she thought I was lactose in tolerant. I tried to explain that I'm actually allergic to cow dairy. She didn't believe me, so I ate it. Within 15 minutes, I had hives all over my body!
