Soup! Who loves it? We do here in the SFFS house. This one was really tasty. It's got a little bit of everything in it that I know a cheeseburger does not have...but it's SOUPER good anyway. A little chopping, a little stove top cooking and the hashbrowns create a delicious little soup that's sure to please!

Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south.
