My second year of making this yummy soup! It's a keeper!
This has become one of our favorite winter meals with warm bread. Add a drop of sourcream and crumbled bacon on top makes it perfect!
I made this without the garlic and used skim milk in place of the cream. I also used a light margarine in place of the butter. It lowered the fat content somewhat and was fantastic!
