Once again it's time for our pal Bacon's Shopping Around the World.   This month's challenge from Bacon's blog:                  

Thanks to everyone for another great edition of Shopping Around the World last month.  It’s so awesome to see the various prices around the world – and the pictures with recipes!

This month we have a suggestion from my cousin Sammy on highlighting soups for January.  Now is the time to start making some wonderful hot soups for dinners that make us feel all cozy and warm.  Is there a special soup that you fix?  A soup that your finally raves about and requests?  It does not have to be five items or less this month.  Share your recipe and picture of your soup!
Meet back here on Wednesday, January 27, 2016 to share recipes, pictures and SOUP!

This month we're sharing a soup Mom hasn't made in a while since it's NOT Low Carb.

Thank you for sharing your recipe! It sounds yummy. I love reading all the shopping posts from around the world. You should tell your mom to make some of that soup. It is okay to indulge sometimes :)
