From my friend, Kenna

My dear friend Kenna Macky makes some delicious soup recipes.  She has soup every sunday, and I wish I lived at her house to try them.  She just sent me this awesome recipe and so I had to share with all of you.  You can check out her blog at the bottom of this post.  Thanks Kenna!
