My neighbor in the cube next to me has brought this soup in for potlucks a couple of times. It is so great when the weather is cold like it is right now. I just crave it and made a batch tonight so I could freeze some for my lunches at work. It really warms up your whole insides and it's filling besides. A meal in one kettle!
