Today I am linking up with Kelly’s Korner to share my favorite soup recipe. I have shared this before but it is still our favorite. Its quick, easy, delicious and it freezes great! I also added a link at the bottom for my new favorite chicken soup recipe… I found it on another blog and have been making it as much as possible.
