Homemade soups are one of my favorite meals. They are incredibly easy to make and for busy nights it’s so convenient to have something ready to go. For us Tuesday nights are Ladies bible study nights and Wednesday’s we have our midweek church services. This means we are usually pressed for time those nights and having something cooking in the crockpot or something we can heat up makes for a much less chaotic night!
Growing up my mom used to make this soup and it has always been a meal I look forward to! If you are looking for a tasty family friendly meal give it a shot and let me know what you think!!
