I have been in search of the perfect soup pot and found it in Bangor, Maine at HomeGoods (love that store!). So, after having that great night's sleep in my own bed, I got up this morning and went to the market to get soup fixin's. I rarely use a recipe when making soup--I just throw in things that I imagine will taste good together. I would say that this soup is a Polish-Italian minestrone of sorts! The Polish part being the smoked Kielbasa sausage. Anyway, delish (I'm on my second bowl)!
