Woo Hoo! My Recipe Was Published in Gooseberry Patch Hometown Christmas! Spicy Can Opener Soup

Woo hoo!  Rejoice with me!  I Was Published in Gooseberry Patch Hometown Christmas! 

I have to admit, I was truly surprised when I received a letter from Gooseberry Patch requesting permission to use my recipe in their newest Christmas cookbook. 
It's truly a recipe that I threw together using items from my nearly bare kitchen cupboards last winter. I called it Spicy Can Opener Soup.  They changed the name, but the ingredients remain the same.

 
I was thrilled to receive my very own copy of the book. 
Of course, I had to make it up and take some photos to share with you dear ladies.
It's simple, quick, and delicious.
It's also one of those scrape the bowl clean recipes.
You saw it here first!

  10. Oh Lyn,
    I'm honored! I hope you like it as much as my family did. They like it with corn chips on top. If it has too much bite, a bit of sour cream will help.
