Mom’s Soup

My mom grew up during the Great Depression and she said that my grandmother had to stretch the food to feed their large family. So I believe this is a recipe that was passed down from my grandmother to my mother to me and I am sharing this with ya’ll. So give it a try and let me hear from you.
