Christmas Eve Soup.
This year I am going to tweak it just a bit. A month or so ago, I tried a recipe from a Gooseberry Patch cookbook, Sunday Dinner at Grandma's. This happens to be a cookbook which I received for free in exchange for having a recipe published in it. You can also find it here at Gooseberry Patch. (Interestingly, it was a soup recipe that I had published in this book -- Cream of Broccoli Soup!)
The recipe I tried recently, though, is Grandma Jo's Potato Soup. Interestingly, the ingredients are almost exactly the same as our Christmas Eve Soup. But this soup was much tastier! What is the difference? I've scanned the page from the cookbook to show you.
So this Christmas Eve, I'll be serving Grandma Jo's Potato Soup instead of my usual!
