Well, my fix seems to be working but this computer is PAINFULLY slow now. I guess I need to work on that now. I think we’ll have to get a new one before too long. Maybe I’ll find a good buy during the holidays. If I don’t update for a few days, you’ll know it has finally died. I am having a terrible getting pictures to load so they are going to look wacky for awhile.
This soup is so good and would be fantastic if you had a cold. The kick isn’t too much of one ~ I didn’t have any problems with it and I can be a wimp with spicy food. The recipe calls for 4 cups of stock but I used 8 cups and also added a couple of chicken boullion cubes ~ otherwise I didn’t change anything.
