Ahhhh, relax and watch the Rose Parade..... 2nd thing to do. Well, God had other plans. I feel asleep watching the parade and woke up with a sore throat. Yuck !! Not the way I wanted the yr. to start on the other hand the soup was ready and oh,how good it taste and feels on this throat.

Thought I would share the recipe. I found this one yr's. ago in my favorite magazine.... Southern Living. Loaded with vit's. and good things for you.
