All this smack-you-in-the-frostbite-face DC weather really put me mood for some homemade soup. I strongly feel that a warm bowl of homemade deliciousness is the temporary antidote for a bad case of the January's. This recipe I can proudly say is my own little brainchild and turned out even better than I had hoped. Feel free to test it out and let me know what you think!
