Since February of 2019, we have adjusted our eating habits a bit more. (Kids still eat bread and pasta.) However, I (Kris) have been eating Keto / Low Carb and so far am down about 60 pounds. I have 60 to go for my goal. I can do it! 🙂
This recipe is one of my go-to for cold weather. I love the flavor of this soup on a cold winter and rainy day. Make sure you have enough salt and pepper in this soup… add more as needed.
