Have I ever mentioned how much I love soup?

Maybe it's because I grew up and still live in Minnesota and you need soup to keep warm through the winter. Especially days like today. It's drizzling freezing rain right now as I look out the window and it's about to turn into snow. We might even get up to two inches overnight.
