we spent the day at the beautiful countryside home of my sister and brother in law. I love the peacefully rural escape with all the cornfields, horse farms, gravel roads. it was also the perfect chilly, rainy day for soup sunday. her cream of chicken and vegetable soup with stars was savory, silky and steamy delicious. I would share the recipe but it’s a secret. actually, it’s a secret to my sister as well, because she makes it up as she goes. so I found a similar recipe here. just add chicken and pasta, if desired. bon appetit!
