My daughter Lauren got this great, simple, vegetable soup off of a Father's Day mug she gave to her Dad one year. It eventually broke, but Lauren kept it in order to keep the soup recipe. So for years, I had this mug with a big chunk out of it in my cupboard! Finally, after Lauren grew up and moved out, I put it in her keepsake box. But before I did, I copied it down. Here it is... Really delicious with a loaf of fresh french bread, aged cheddar and a glass of wine. Make some and freeze some for a rainy day!
