Author Notes: This has been a favorite of mine for years. It's the first soup I make in the Fall and last one before spring. It's an old Polish soup but you don't have to be Polish to love it. This is a good soup for a winter day by a fire. It's even better the second and third day. Enjoy. - stevea66
