Once you try this soup – you’ll never go back to Campbell’s again.  I keep the ingredients on hand at all times during the winter.  If we ever do get snowed in,  we’re ready!   Make this soup, put on your comfy pants, curl up by the fire, and read a book.  It’s just too easy to make and it tastes so good.
