Yes, is getting so cold! “Translation” it’s soup season friends, let’s make tons of soup. I just started the season with my northern beans, ground chicken and shitake mushrooms soup. The shitake is so meaty that makes you believe you are eating chicken, smile… A simple yet fulfilling soup expected to warm up my bones, and as I expected it did!
