Baby, It's Cold Outside!

It's a bit nippy here at the Ormond house, at least by Sunshine State standards, perfect soup weather! We're going shopping this morning and then visiting some friends this afternoon so it'll be lovely to come home and find this hearty, savory dinner waiting for us!

The bread-eaters in the family will be eating Baked Tortilla Chips along with the soup.
