Got an issue of Southern Living Magazine (Jan 2009) and there was an article about Dutch ovens. (always wanted to know what one was considering I have so many recipes that call for one)!
The article was very informative, and had a wonderful recipe for this soup & I couldn't wait to make it! My father in law purchased me an incredibly beauiful red one by Martha Stewart at Macy's & let me tell you, it's my new favorite pot. Also, the soup was unbelievable, and has now become something I enjoy making atleast every other week. My family never gets tired of it. :)
