This was one of my favorite soups as a child, though I ate the condensed, canned version, not home made.

For a shortcut version use a decent canned beef stock / broth rather than home-made, but the home-made is so easy why … Continue reading.....
I have always loved soup.
I ate a lot of soup for lunch when I was a child – usually the condensed kind that came in the red and white cans. I loved them all (except mushroom; that was just gross….)
