Meet my Grandma Bridges..Her name was Martha

Now she made this often as my dad was growing up and my parents made it for us as we were growing up. Now I am making it for my family. I personally LOVE this soup as do everyone else in my family. And not just because it came from my grandmother but because it really is delicious and healthy! It makes quite a bit on a good budget!  So enjoy and please let me know what you think of the soup!
