My brother came in from New Orleans this weekend. His flight got in late and I was looking for something comforting and warming to make him. I knew that even the DC mild cold would seem very cold to him coming from New Orleans. I think this soup does the trick. Plus it wards off any marauding bands of vampires you may see out there. It is October after all.
This is a perfect soup for a cold night. It is warm, comforting, and delicious. You can serve it with a fried egg on top, my husband’s favorite, or just some good bread cut up and toasted, my favorite.
