Baby, its cold outside! It's official, we have just past the first day of Winter with colder days are ahead. The one thing I love about winter is the wonderful soups my mother used to make.

I grew up in a three story house and every Saturday my two sisters and I had to clean the house from top to bottom, yes every darn floor. I mean military clean, spit shine clean, eat off the floor clean. Our sweet mother would put a big pot of soup to simmer for hours and hours. Once the house was spotless, we could fill our bellies to the top with love.

What type of soup did your mom make for you on cold winter days?
