So this soup was the Hubs idea. For some reason he wanted a big thing of soup to eat on for a couple of days. I will never understand how he can enjoy eating hot soup when he works outside in the 100+ degree weather all day. I personally think I would want to eat nothing but ice cream and popsicles. But he’s a little off his rocker. And that’s ok. And that’s why we have soup for dinner in the middle of a Texas summer.

The flavor of the soup was actually really good. The only complaint the Hubs had was the kale. He was not a fan. He had never had kale before this & I didn’t really chop it up that well before adding it in. I think if I had really chopped it up into smaller pieces it wouldn’t have bothered him.
