Here is a recipe that simply can’t be beat for those cool days in October. As the leaves change, the clock turns back and the busy holiday season approaches, take the time to make a nice hot pot of this soup. Serve it with a side salad and perhaps a biscuit. After the dishes are done (preferably by someone else) kick back in your favorite chair and savor the autumn evenings. Happy Fall everyone!
