I made this some time back when my kids were teens and it was on kittencalskitchen.com. It is simple, delicious and gives leftovers a fresh taste! It is very good to teach new cooks that with planned leftovers they can avoid the drive thru, save money and eat well! This is going back into my binder! Thanks Kittencal!

WOW! This soup is so yummy! I actually made it in my slow cooker while we were out running errands. I used brown rice and leftover turkey meat. Thanks Kitten for a wonderfully hearty soothing soup! Made for ABC Tag.
