We have our friend Mike here from California. He is on leave with the Marines and we are so happy to be hanging out with him like old times. He was the best man at our wedding, and I’ve only known my husband approximately 5 days longer than Mike. We have been friends for years now, and I think of him more like a Brother than one of Derrick’s friends.
On the first full day he was at our place, the weather was dismal, and he mentioned that soup sounded really good. So, I decided to make some for dinner! I had it on the menu plan (yes, I started a menu plan) for Sunday, but I shifted a few things around and BOOM. Soup night.
My friend Ashley told me that she had found this on Pinterest and it was absolutely amazing. Well, my friends, it was pretty darn good. I’m sure extra sodium would come in handy to most (Mike added some salt) but to our low-sodium brothers and sisters this is one flavorful dish! Derrick ate approximately three bowls of it and Aidan exclaimed “MMMMM!” when he had his first few bites. So… whatever that is worth. I like it too, and had it again for lunch today. Not sure if it got better or if I just didn’t realize how good it was last night. This one is definitely going in the rotation.
This recipe has been adapted from RiverNorthPaleo’s Recipe to meet our low sodium requirements. Also, the picture that I took from my phone is crappy, so this is her’s too!
