What’s better on a cold day than a hot dinner that warms everyone up nicely and gives you that overall lovely feeling that a warm hot soup and fresh bread gives you, leaving you drowsy after mealtime.

This adaptation of an old favorite leaves you knowing you just had the perfect meal. A spin-off of old fashioned vegetable soup,

I took it a step further adding some of my own personal favorites and making the recipe my own.
My family and extended family love to get together for this meal and when its over we all adjourn to the living room and doze intermittently while we watch television and chat and snack on some chocolate crackle top cookies for dessert with coffee or milk.

The perfect evening meal on a snowy day for us includes

Nebraska Steak Soup

Home made bread (made from Rhodes frozen bread dough on a busy day)
