Author Notes

I ate this delicious soup with two powerful ladies I don't see very often. On this particular occasion, It was soon after one of my best friends, (and one of the girls' brother) passed away after a brave battle with cancer. We wanted to reunite over good food, memories and laughter. We ate this soup together in memory of him and it lifted our spirits and warmed our hearts. —Myrite
