Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
When I first moved to Florida from Chicago, I missed the fall season terribly! I loved the multi-colored leaves, taking brisk walks on an Indian summer afternoon, wearing cozy sweaters, and chatting with my family in front of the fireplace. I served this soup as the first course at the first dinner party my husband and I hosted after we were married. Our friends raved about this delicious soup and said it made it feel like fall in Florida! I serve it at Thanksgiving, Christmas dinner parties, or as a light lunch or dinner any time of year. It is simple to make and always makes me feel warm and cozy inside. Thanks,
Colleen
