    My pleasure…I am happy you tried it and enjoyed it! Isn’t it truly amazing that some of the best recipes/foods are the simplest prepared? Let me know what fun garnishes you put in your soup. I even tried fried proscuitto and duck confit…amazing(not at the same time, although…)
    Enjoy the holidays and thanks for reading.
