Dark Days Challenge #4

Christmas Eve Soup
Amidst all the hustle and bustle of holiday planning and packing for holiday getaways, I managed to squeeze in this soup and I'm glad I did. It's hearty, delicious and perfect for a nutritious meal on the go. As per our Dark Days Challenge commitment, it was strictly local.

Enjoy and Merry Christmas!
