My dear friend Shirley shared this recipe with me several years ago before she passed. I've been making it my own ever since. Every time I think of her, I make the soup. I sometimes add a cup of cheddar cheese at the end and melt it in for an extra measure of comfort. —Carol Brault, Woodville, Wisconsin
