Fall is here, my how time truly fly’s… A time where one can get inspired and encouraged by just looking about them to see the beauty that surrounds. The cool, brisk, Autumn air dancing the blanket of cheery, bright colored leaves all around. What a lovely season in the year, this is a time that seems quite fitting to bring out warm, steaming, delicious, soups for dinner. This is a recipe that I got from my Aunt.
