My mom wasn't one to let us lick and/or taste before her cooking concoctions/creations were set on the table. Sometimes Denny (my brother) and I would sneak a taste here and there, but for fear we'd get caught, we had to be pretty cagy. I didn't think much about this soup recipe as I was chopping and preparing it; but after I cooked and put it on the table, and after Ken and I had eaten it for supper, I found it so scrumptious, I felt a strong temptation welling up in me to lick the pot, lick the bowls, and lick the spoons. (Don't tell Mom.) Even though I was full and couldn't eat another bite, I almost couldn't wait for another meal so I could eat the leftovers. (Don't let your children read this licking stuff I've written about. It's very uncouth!) But please try this soup; you and your family will love it.
