Share a Spoon: Soup's on!
It's Share a Spoon day over at Think Tank Momma's place. Momma hosts this little recipe swap every Thursday and it's a great place to get some yummy recipes.
This week, the theme is Souper Salad and Sammies. I told her I was looking for some good sandwich ideas and she hooked me up! She pretty much rocks!
I don't have any good sandwich ideas and I pretty much eat the same old romaine with light caesar when I have a salad. Boring, I know. I'm a creature of habit. What can I say?
Soup is one thing I have plenty of recipes for. MB and I can eat the heck out of some soup. We heart it. Big time.
This little recipe is one of my favorite winter soups. It's hearty enough to really fill you up and warm you up. It's also healthy and light and easy on your waistline.
I hope you enjoy! Make sure you head over to Momma's place to share your favorite Soup, Salad and Sandwich recipes.
