There is nothing like a warm heartfelt bowl/cup of hot Soup during cold nights in the winter.
To keep warm I decided to try out a new recipe for dinner, inspired by the endless menu from the World Wide Web, and must I say what I put together became a crowds favorite, which is yet to make a come back in a larger pot!
Every winter season without fail my Grandmother, Aus B, would make a huge pot of Soup for the family.
Patiently waiting all day the bowl of delicious would be served, not knowing what flavors, textures and meaty surprises to expect, this serving came with a fresh bread roll with butter on the side.
