  1. Someone very dear to me used to make almost this same soup. I am so lucky to have gotten her recipe before she passed away. She used the alphabet noodles and also add just a tablespoon or so of sugar (sounds crazy I know but it is DELICIOUS) everyone goes crazy over it. I like to add more veggies like okra, cabbage, lima beans, potatoes, etc. Thank you for your special video ….I love to watch you cook and hear you talk, and think you and your husband are adorable! Take care!

  2. I’ve been making soup like this for 35 years. My dad always made soup this way. I use stew beef cubes instead of ground beef, when I can find it or afford it. Since COVID hit I’ve gone back to using ground beef again. Love it and have been making it a few times a month
