Today is Memorial Day, and let's not forget why we celebrate this day.
With the weather being so unpredictable....
cold one day
raining the next
I decided to slip in one more soup recipe.
This soup is out of this world fantastic.
I am a creamy mushroom soup fan, and the chicken added is a super bonus.
This will certainly warm your soul.
This creamy soup is only 5 WW points per serving (1 cup).
So if you want to end your day with a warm heart, this soup will do the trick.
