Every Halloween since I can remember my mom would make us soup. Not any kind of soup, but the same kind every year. She would make it before we went out trick-or-treating. When we were older she would make it before we went to parties. It was always there and I loved it!
When I got married I made it for Ryan and thank heavens he loved it. He can be a little picky, so this made me happy! Since he loves it I have been able to continue the tradition with my little family. It is super simple and super yummy.
Sometimes I have rolls or bread on the side, but sometimes I like to mix it up and have the soup inside a bread bowl. Whatever works, but the soup stays the same. I LOVE soup. I especially love it when it is cold because it warms me up. (I am cold all the time it seems.) Halloween is the perfect time because there is a nip in the air.
So do you want the recipe? I think you do and I think you will love it. It is the best for picky eaters too. There really isn't a lot to it so even the pickiest eaters will love it.
