The weather has changed here in Central Nebraska and the evenings are crisp.  Saturday evenings are for watching football with our family and best enjoyed with soup that has been simmering all day.

This is an easy recipe and it can be incredibly easy, depending on how you make it.  First, I wrote the stove top instructions, then I wrote how to prepare this recipe with a  Vita Mix Vita Prep 3 and a Crock Pot
